Temps in 50's, high overcast clouds, windy.
Easy, slow paced hike on the North Shore trails. All trails are easy to see and traverse. Saw some birds and quite a few longhorns with their calves. As always, trash was picked up - old cans, broken glass and GU packets; sure wish folks would pick up after themselves.
Not a lot to say about today's hike except this hike put me over 2000 miles in Texas with the vast majority being at the San Angelo State Park.
