Humidity=Bugs & Sweat

“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
-Henry David Thoreau

WOW!!!! Today was the most humid day for hiking that I have encountered so far this year. At 5:20 am the temperature was already 66 degrees and the humidity was sky high. The forecast tonight is for thunderstorms so I guess the high humidity just comes with the territory! As a matter of fact, it was so bad that as I stretched before I even started hiking I was sweating profusely. Needless to say, the sweating never stopped!

All in all it was still a great hike.

Another fine trail at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation.

The trail was partially obscured by the brush on both sides.

Early in the morning the peace and stillness of the woods is mesmerizing.

Happy Hiking!!!

This is my place in the world. A place where I want to be. A place where I need to be.
