A typical start at the crack of noon was really quite nice for today, given that I would have thought Tucson would be closer to 100 than 80 for highs. It was pleasant the entire time, except when eating in the Window. Then it was chilly from the gusty winds and a persistent cloud. It is moist in the soil from the recent rain, which is also a new way to see the mountains around Tucson. Every time I hiked here over the last 4 years when visiting, Spring was bone dry.

On a personal note, I decided that other than Finger Rock, I shouldn't hike the canyons on the west side of the Catalinas after leaf out. There is so much poison ivy, I don't think it is worth the risk for me. In the past, I was usually done hiking these trails by now. They all have it, some worse than other, and this one is the worst. Still, I wanted to hike it this year, and with the cool weather it was great to get it in so late in the Spring.
