Temps started at 75, ended at 82. Cloudy, gloomy and HUMID with sporadic sunlight until the end of the hike when the sun came out. Light wind.
Uneventful hike along mostly groomed trails - about half of Winding Snake needs to be mowed! Birds were singing but not out and about as I had hoped. No animals were seen with the exception of a cottontail rabbit and a Mexican ground squirrel. I saw a solitary lizard near the end of the hike. There are more wildflowers in bloom as well as a sizeable number of cactus blossoms. Not much else to report.
NEW Trail signage is up so I'll use the trail names that are on the sign. Example - "Nature Loop" is now known as "Nature Trail".
