Pretty Near Cold

Fog or low-hanging clouds?
It was 47F when Becca and I left for the mountain this morning.  Yesterday afternoon we got rain, and it was quite humid throughout the night.  But we didn't expect to have fog greet us when we got out there today.  A persistent breeze that occasionally gusted into a wind brought the fog in and then pushed it out.  Halfway through the trek the fog and low-hanging clouds were nearly gone, and it became sunny and windy.  It's still windy now, but only a bit chilly.  This morning it was almost cold, and for the first time in ages I wore long hiking trousers for our morning jaunt.
