Temp in the low 70's, overcast and h-u-m-i-d with sporadic, light winds.
Trails were damp with morning dew in places but dry otherwise. Vegetation continues to grow but the trails are easy to see - even when the vegetation is chest high (as on portions of Winding Snake). Numerous birds were out and singing for mates, the wild flowers, in all colors, are in bloom including bee brush; butterflies were feasting on all the flowers and bee brush.
The moisture laden air dampened any traffic noises so all I heard were the birds singing as I hiked the trails in perfect solitude. It doesn't get better than this!
