This hawk was above the canyon two days ago, nearly translucent from the strength of the sun. Not even the buzzards are flying this morning. It is 93 degrees now (10 AM) and forecast to hit 112 today, and tomorrow.
I am very tolerant of hot weather, and found out my body temperature is consistently 4.6 degrees lower than the average. So just 94/34.4 degrees vs. 98.6/37, and I can even work in heat like this, though it of course feels very hot also. Please enjoy this picture!
