At the entrance of Burkett Park, this Jack Rabbit stood still long enough for me to get this photo.

Leg 2 -  5 Point Junction > dirt road (NE) > Trailhead to Trailhead (S) > Burkett Trail > Burkett Park      3.0 miles

Temp started at 80, ended at 95.  Very sunny with none to a very slight and infrequent breeze.

Quiet hike along easy to see and traverse trails.  I saw six javelinas and a few deer on my way in.  At the beginning of the hike, I saw a lone Jack Rabbit (photo attached) and a few Black Buzzards flying around.
