Temps started at 69 and ended at 80, sunny with strong and steady 20-30 mph NE winds.
Todays hike was along dry and easy to traverse trails and roads. VERY strong winds kept most of the wildlife in place; we spotted a single raptor as well as a single white tail deer. Otherwise, the birds stayed low for the most part and there were no other animals spotted. A snake was seen crossing the road but no identification was made with the exception that it wasn't a rattler.
More wild flowers are blooming and there are more cactus blooms as well - the vast majority of the cactus blooms are yellow or very pale yellow with a greenish tint,
