It didn't feel too hot while we were out there, but things began to warm up on our inbound leg. We're headed for a high of 95F this afternoon.
Smoke was again evident with the Organ Mountains as a backdrop. There are several fires burning in the Gila National Forest, including one called the Doagy Fire which might be sending the smoke our way.
