The result of the overnight precipitation was sky-high humidity, and Dr. K, Willow, Frio and I felt every bit of it during our daily trek, which we cut a bit short because of broiling weather conditions.

After our trek we went for a ride in the air-conditioned comfort of the CR-V, reveling in the cold breeze emanating from the vents.
