Died too Young
Was surprised to see this young coachwhip. I don't know if the warmer weather brought him out or some other reason. In any event, he met his end and the ants were having a feast. (Photo by MikeHikes)
The Only One Who Sat Still
The other members of the javelina family scampered into the surrounding brush but this one stayed in place sniffing and waiting to see if I'd follow - I didn't. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Orange Crowned Warbler
Looks like a winter visitor is back! (Photo by MikeHikes)
A Portion of the Lanky Lackey Trail
A good percentage of this trail is rocky with loose soil. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Axis Deer inside the park.
Normally I only see White tail deer but there were three Axis deer (Only got a photo of one) with some White tail deer, fairly close to the park entrance gate. (Photo by MikeHikes)
A Loggerhead Shrike
Catching some rays at Burkett Park before we started our hike. Saw a couple more Loggerheads while hiking but no good photos. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Follow the Tail to the Head
The tail is in sharp focus and the head is slightly blurry but if you can follow the tail, you'll see it is a Ringneck Snake. It was extremely thin and 4-5 inches long. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Last Fruit of the Season
It's already the end of August and I'm sure this will be the last fruit the cactus will produce for this season. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Catching Some Rays
This fox was enjoying the morning sun near Roller coaster Trail. I got his photo and when I went a little close, he decided it was time to leave. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Garden Spider
Saw quite a few of these spiders at various places while on today's hike. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Watching from the Bushes
This grey fox ran into the bushes and watched as I tried to get his picture, after about ten seconds, he went deeper in and I lost sight of him. This was the best of the bunch. (Photo by MikeHikes)
Small but Photogenic!
Near the end of the East Potts Creek Trail, this horned toad sat in the middle of the trail. I got the photo and because he was small (about the size of my thumb), I made him get off the trail and scamper to safety in the surrounding brush. (Photo by MikeHikes)

Slow and easy hike along dry, easy to traverse trails.  Deer were out as were some birds but nothing spectacular.  Lots of green vegetation still but no wildflowers to speak of although there were a few sunflowers out.
