The Difference a Day Makes

First 8 images are various views of interesting clouds over Tortugas Mountain
The early start Becca and I got this morning was much more important than the one we got yesterday.  The weather then was cloudy and a lot cooler; we only hit 92F for a high.  This morning was sunny and mostly clear with no breeze, and we're headed for a high temp of 101F.  The difference between yesterday and today was apparent; it simply felt a lot hotter.  Neither Becca nor I seemed in the mood for an extended trek so we cut it short.  We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

Contrast this image with the same one I took yesterday
