Leg 1 -  Burkett park > WS to LL Connector > Rollercoaster > West Potts Creek > Potts Creek > Turkey Creek > 5 points Junction

Leg 2 -  5 Points Junction > Flintstone (S) > Playground > Bell's Point > Playground (S) > Potts Creek > Burkett Trail > Buirkett Park

Temps started at 66, ended at 74.  Low overcast clouds with no Sun until the end of the hike.  Slightly humid as well.

Quiet, leisurely hike along dew dampened trails that are easy to see and traverse.  Not much wildlife visible today and no reptiles were spotted either.  Birds were a little more active but even they were not too active.

More flowers are in bloom and prickly pear cactus are beginning to bud out (photo attached).
