Hint of Monsoon Season

Distant haze caused by high humidity
It was very cool and quite humid this morning due to the on-and-off rain showers we got yesterday.  I eventually had to take off my warmup jacket about two-thirds of the way through the hike, but before that I experienced that strange bodily sensation when you're chilly and warm at the same time.  Becca and I enjoyed a long trek that didn't involve any off-trail activity.  We bumped into a few outdoor enthusiasts enjoying nature, including our friend Jimmy who was off to the Ocotillo forest.
