Raining in the Desert

I've been trying to train a bit after taking an easier week following Skull Valley, and I think that I am finally starting to come around on the bike. Amazing what a little rest can do for you. Anyway, we have the remnants of a tropical depression bringing some much needed rain and cooler temperatures into the Tucson valley over the next couple days. Today the forecast called for scattered showers all day with a high temp of only 87, which looked like a pretty good day for riding, as long as you didn't mind getting a little wet. I headed out this morning at 6:45 in a steady drizzle, but that was ok since the temps were in the 70's. Went the long way out Big Square, with the rain letting up about two hours in, but giving way to a pretty good headwind on the return trip. Cool ride, though, as it is always a treat to view the Tucson Mountains when they are shrouded in clouds. Adios.
