I've spent lots of time in the deserts of AZ and NM in summer. The very hottest I've ever been in my life was in FL with 98* and 99% humidity.
AZ heat is brutal, but it can be handled when it's 'dry'. Wet, humid heat is far worse in my experience. I'll take by preference a dry 105*f to a humid 90* any day.
Totally loving the pics of Tucson's trails, too. I had no idea they've got so many!
