2 parter today, I first hiked the Dos Arroyos trail at Dankworth Pond SP and then drove out to Roper Lake SP and hiked the Mariah Mesa trail and the trail around the lake. I saw a lot of wildlife at both parks. At Dankworth I found 4 vultures in a tree, a gopher snake, lots of butterflies & dragonflies. At Roper I saw lots of quail, cottontails, bees, a few cranes & a couple of hawks. I stopped at Roper to see if I could find the owls I viewed the evening before but they were nowhere to be found. It was a very hot day today and I ended the trip with a nice swim out at the island.
