It was only 69 F when Becca and I began our hike on the west side of Tortugas Mountain, but the humidity and dewpoint were high. The little bit of rain we got late yesterday just served to saturate the air with moisture, and it felt pretty brutal out there today due to an absence of wind. Nevertheless, there were lots of outdoor enthusiasts around the mountain, jogging, hiking and riding bikes. We old, sinewy rattlesnakes have to tough it out if we want to get any exercise around these parts.

I could do with some of your heat!
We're seeing a lot of lizards right now. They thrive in the heat.
Is it cold Down Under, Tonia?
