    The 98% humidity holds the temperature down to 95. If the humidity were to evaporate, the temperature would BE 115 in B'more. It's 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

    None of that is going to happen. And those 400 dollar a person permits for havasupai are non refundable.....
    Damn, I miss going on a long good hike. This winter has been depressing.

    I resceduled my Havasupai permits for November this year. I still have flight coupons for KLM and American Airlines so I still might do this trip this year. It will probably be my last big overseas trip. There are plenty of interesting places, mountains and hikes within Europe that I have never done and I really want to stop all non essential flying.
