|Sky at start|
There were others out and about on this chilly morning (47F at start), but I only ran into one, a woman I see hiking every once in a while; i.e. I see her every once in a while hiking. She's a pleasant person, and we exchanged greetings.
Halfway through my hike--basically as soon as I got out of shadow into sunlight--I had to remove my Marmot PreCip jacket because I got too warm; it's not cool enough yet to keep all layers on during a trek.

|Tortugas and the Organs|
|Torrey Yucca and Soaptrees to the west|
