At the time of this write, the rains were plentiful and providing much needed water to our desert and canyons. Things are so green around here.
And of course with it comes all of the bugs and humidity which make hiking really bad.
Today's photos were taken near Patagonia on an afternoon hike. I brought water with me but almost suffered heat exhaustion. I was with a friend and I tried taking pictures but my eyesight was getting blurry.
There were grasshoppers galore.....and the chiggers. In fact, the pain I suffered on this day went a little too far. We made it back after almost collapsing. When I took my shoes and socks off, I discovered my feet had been severely attacked by hundreds of chigger bites. This was worse than Panama during our turtle project along the Caribbean beach.
Let's just say that I am glad to be done with this rainy, hot and humid weather. It's time for gardening and cooler temps again.
