Monsoon season brings clouds, sometimes they reach the ground.
Up early, the moon has set, just the glow of town…hmm, why a glow? Look out the window… overcast, which translates to perfect day for exploring. It means not too hot, no time factor before the sun turns the outdoors into an oven, and with that freedom, ridges and peaks call to me. I notice routes, just little eddies in the brush at first, then another and another until there’s no more up. No ridge-running, it’s a lone peak, so back down, then back up and over the ridge to home, bearing thorns, twigs, dirt, and photos.
