Lake Havasu State Park participated today in First Day Hikes, which is a national program involving all 50 states. It’s an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenating and connecting with the outdoors by taking a hike. Supervising Ranger Cindy Smith and I led the hike on the park's Mohave Sunset Trail. Cindy pointed out desert plants and animals, both native and invasive, and talked about their distribution and uses. I chipped in on birds, identifying the ones we saw, and pointing out nesting sites. We had eleven people show up for the hike on this cold morning, and most interesting to me, it was the first time for each person to use the trail.
