So many interesting things to see on an everyday hike.
Of course, it's always oppressively humid here in the east in the summer. However, we had a tremendous thunderstorm last night that accompanied a cold front, and this morning the humidity (while still high) and the temperature were more moderate.
That kind of break in the weather is always a huge relief, Scott.
