Temp started at low-50's, ended at low 70's.  Intermittent northerly winds, sunny and very few clouds.

As my last report stated, the trails were wet, muddy, rough and rocky.  Lots of small birds out as were the butterflies.  I saw a few whitetail does and one fairly large 8 point buck - good luck to them as the park closed early today for a scheduled hunt.

Not much else to report !
