Upper 40's, overcast and mild wind.

Basically used the park's west side trails to head North then the east side trails to return (South bound).

Some birds and a couple of white tail deer were all the wildlife I observed during the hike.  Not much else to report, the trails were nice and dry plus, there wasn't much trash to pick up.
