Cool Weather

It's almost fall backpacking season. I use to endure the heat but I've gotten to the age that I prefer to wait for cooler temperatures. Three weeks from yesterday my son arrives. We have planned a Grand Canyon trip of five nights and six days. The weekend following this trip Julie and I have a permit for two nights in the Canyon. The average high temperature on the South Rim in October is 65 and the low is 36. The inner canyon temperatures are 84 and 58. The following weekend, the first weekend in November, I have a Painted Desert trip planned with Todd and Dave. November's average temperatures for the Desert are 59 high and 39 low. Four consecutive weekends of cool fun to anticipate.
