Hot Tootsies, in a snow-melt mountain stream!!

Tucson, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Tucson Doug and his wife Donna took my sister and I hiking in the Santa Catalina Mtns near Tucson. After 2 miles of rocky climbing we got to their favorite picnic spot, and Donna & I immediately shed our shoes and soaked our hot feet in the icy water flowing downhill from somewhere several thousand feet above us! She's the top feet, the other is me. (Doug and my sister refused to join us--lol!!)

Lynn, it was heavenly!! After about 2 hours and two miles of rough terrain, mostly uphill, and being overheated and hot-footed, this was the most welcome sight you can imagine!! :D

Chuckling...that's for sure, Peter! I bet that ocean water is barely above freezing, isn't it? This snow-melt water had been running over warm rocks for a while so it wasn't icy but not far from it! :D Further down the slope about half a mile or so it was pretty warm, and then just disappeared into the sand or underground, we didn't know which, but beyond that was only dry rocks and sand.

That looks like it would be most welcome after the heat. My feet can't wait to get into their fav' seaside rock pool, especially when those shrimps get to work. Going to have to wait a little while yet as its too cold and wild for me or the shrimps.

Which is what most people would call the water temp we swim in all summer here, Kathy!! :D I remember a kid from the south running and jumping in what we thought was a very warm lake, and coming out a few minutes later with his teeth chattering and looking quite blue-skinned!! All he could say was "Mucho frio!! Mucho frio!!" (Spanish for "VERY COLD!")

LOL! Mainly temperatures, Kathy! "Icy" is not a temperature I'm usually glad to see, even in the summer!

Thanks, Kathy! Not sure if you're referring to the difference in feet or the difference between hot feet and cold water? :D It was wonderful, though---about the same temp as we swim in in the summers up here in Minn!! :D

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)/>free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
