Another hike today. In the heat. It was hot, maybe 80, and felt like a spring day. Purple Blue Dicks bloomed all over the barren, burned hills.
I'm glad I was not leading the hike. Some people bit off more than they could chew. I did not have to concern myself with it. I did have to wait, however, but on such a nice day, I did not mind. Gave me time to hike barefoot for a while.
Seems like spring happens so quickly that winter lasts about a week anymore, if that.
