Gillam Park 4/5/2009

I arrived at the 7:40 AM. It was cloudy but clearing and about 65F. It was supposed to clear but about 2 hours into the excursion a light rain started forcing me to stow the camera. The rain didn’t amount to much but it was disappointing. I left at 10:50. My pedometer said I had walked 5 miles which sounds about right for the amount of time spent though its hard to believe there’s 5 miles of trails in there. First of season birds are marked with an asterisk.
