Temp started at 72, ended at 85. Partly cloudy, intermittent southerly breeze.
Due to the low wind, the gnats were pretty bad today. The trails are visible but are becoming overgrown with vegetation in many places - this is a concern because of the increased possibility of unintentionally stepping on small lizards, horned toads or snakes. The birds were out but not too active and there were no rare or unusual ones observed. Most of the cactus blooms are gone although the few remaining blooms had numerous insects working to get the pollen.
