    I just saw a bolt of lightning heading towards Dreamy Draw and sky doesn't look good in that direction so I am not going to risk it. Hopefully another time soon. Hike safe if you all decide to give it a try!

    No hikes for me during the week in this heat yet, as I work outside every day (and am on my feet a lot anyway).

    You DO know why the name "Dreamy Draw", right? They used to mine MERCURY there, and you know the effect that mercury vapors have on your melon!

    How's THAT for comforting history trivia to accompany an already arduous hike? :D

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
