I've spent much of my life in hot climates. Since 2001, I've lived in Colorado except for one year. I guess that I've gotten really accustomed to cool weather. This summer at home was very cool. I think we hit 90 F maybe once. In fact, I hear that we had snow on the ground at home a couple of days ago.

This photo was taken at the Tucson Mountain Museum. We got there around 8:30 AM and it was already 88 F. Yikes. Before we left Tucson, it was 104 F. That's a good temperature for a soak in a hot spring on a chilly day - not for walking around.

Tomorrow, I'm heading up to the Chiricahua mountains to camp for the next 5 days. I sure hope it cooler up there! The current issue of Arizona Highways, has a great photo of colorful maple leaves surrounding a small stream. I suspect it still to warm to see something similar.

I agree about the high temperatures being for hot springs.

The colors are going off here at 8250 feet.

Have fun and hope you get to cool off.

Holy crap that's beautiful. Dude, can you go a week without taking a stunning picture? I didn't think so.

Very Tranquil!

I imagine you'll have some new amazing images upon your return from a 5 day camp! I look forward to them :)
