PAS walk, from main (sports field) parking lot south on lower trail, across dam, to Altadena Drain, where we lingered for a while. To return, we walked west across dam and took upper trail through oaks northbound. Marine layer moved in just after walk started and lingered through 10:00 or so, making conditions very pleasant much of the time -- cool, moderate humidity, winds light. Warming quickly at the end. Water was limited to only a trickle at Berkshire Creek and a small pond and puddles at Altadena Drain, with the latter very active with birds. Extensive, thick willow forest in southern end of basin, for now at least.
