This is why my alarm went off at 3:51 am this morning, summer arrives early in the desert. I was off the trails at 8:15 am and it was already in the high 80’s. Will I get my first taste of a summer monsoon on Saturday? Time will tell, we could use the rain, curious to see what the desert looks like after a storm. Don’t want to be out in it if there will be lightning, but if it’s only rain let’s just say I have some nice rain gear that doesn’t get much use anymore.
