Isis, Jackrabbit, and I have a name for the dark cloud that seems to follow me everywhere when I hike: Murphy (named for Murphy's Law). Murphy is actually a weather poltergeist who likes to drop rainstorms on unsuspecting hikers. He had a crush on me and was always trying to impress me with his terrible thunderstorms. I was not amused.
Murphy hovered around me on much of the hike, but rarely did he "do his thing." I had mostly sunny skies for the entire two weeks. In this picture, I'm pointing to Murphy--my constant hiking companion.
