Temps start at 65, end at 85. Partly cloudy with light wind.

Nice hike although more people than usual.  The trails were dry and easy to see.  Birds were signing but not really visible and when they were, they stayed in the brush more than in the trees.  There were more bushes, cacti and flowers in bloom and that meant a lot of bees were buzzing around. For some reason, the bees really enjoyed the blooms on the center stalk of the yucca plants.
