Temps start at 80, end at 88. Sunny with thin, high, wispy clouds and intermittent breeze.
Quiet hike today along dry trails. All trails have been groomed and are easy to traverse. This area is in a multi-day, 100+ temp rut and it shows at the park. No flowers or cacti in bloom, lots of dry vegetation, minimal movement by birds, and few animals or reptiles are seen. O.C. Fisher reservoir is at 8.4% capacity and continues to drop. There are some park users but not many, even on the weekend.
