Tuesday June 2nd 2020
The temperature reached triple digits in Cottonwood AZ today. The day started with full sun and a gentle breeze. By midday the breeze was gone allowing it to really warm up. Late in the afternoon the clouds moved in. Without direct sun outside activity became possible. This evening the clouds remain and a very strong wind has arrived.
Once the clouds covered the sky the I set out on a hike into the Coconino National Forest. The trail is rocky and climbs up hill for a long distance. It is possible to see long distances to the north and east from the top. Approaching nightfall kept me from continuing the loop trail. I turned around in time to get back to my RV home before dark. The temperatures this weekend are forecast to be cooler, so I may try the trail again.
