Temp started at 60, cloudy with light fog. As the hike progressed, the sky cleared, the wind picked up and the temp warmed to 76.
A false Spring today as the temperature will stay warm for a few days before another cold front arrives with another freeze. Trails were dry, for the most part, with a few wet spots on Roller Coaster and Chaparral. Most of the trails have been groomed so they are easy to see. Numerous types of birds were out in force; lots of them singing for mates! A few raptors were on the hunt as well.
I saw my "first for this year" Agarita bush in bloom with numerous small, yellow flowers perfuming the air - the scent reminds me of hot dust, mesquite wood smoke and honey. (photo attached)
Picked up a couple of bags of trash from the trails but otherwise, all went well.
