I'm glad that you were able to get away from the crowds to a more secluded area of the mountain.
Packrat: Your accounts of misery in the middle of summer in the Chihuahua Desert make me think Kali and I made the right decision to move to 7,300 feet in arid Colorado. Of course, that is yet to be seen. In any case, we're enjoying surprising low humidity and normal temperatures here in the northern Piedmont (though normal [mid- to upper 80s] is still too warm for me).
Mid-summer at 7300 feet will still be hot, Scott; the advantage will come at night when it will cool probably into the mid- to high-50s. Here we're only getting down to 69/70 F at night.
