Temps started in low 40's, ended in mid 50's. Mostly sunny with wispy clouds and a steady SW breeze.
The trails were surprisingly damp and in some spots, very muddy. Trails have either been groomed or the vegetation has died off because there were no issues with seeing a clear trail ahead. As usual, there were a few spots that could use some gravel or other fill in spots but overall, the trails were good.
Lots of small butterflies and grasshoppers were seen as well as a number of small birds. No animals were spotted. Our first freeze of the season is predicted to occur in less than 48 hours - I hope all the park residents are prepared!
