|Heavy smoke enshrouds Tortugas Mountain|
The smoke in the Las Cruces area was significantly worse than it was yesterday, completely obscuring any view of the Organ Mountains. Hiking was slightly difficult, as I could feel the smoke in my lungs. We were surprised to see several groups of joggers running to the top of Tortugas Mountain. Trekking was bad enough, but running would have sucked in too much bad air. We did a moderately-long hike before heading home. (Too many funerary terms in this post?)

The air was also very smoky in El Paso.
