    I'll stay home to do some work, during the day.

    (I might do a night hike, as well, for sunrise somewhere.)

    JoshandBaron and OldEric I am on Doxycycline Hyclate, which I assume is what you are calling "Doxy". I usually have a pretty good tan at this time of year and don't generally burn unless I spend many hours in direct sun (when I almost without fail don't think to put suntan lotion on for). I'm not going to hole up in my house like a hermit but I don't want to push my luck either. Definitely sucks in July but it is only 2 more weeks. Just have to suck it up for now and avoid time above treeline.

    After 2 rounds of Lyme, I can say that the sun sensitivity from the Doxy was worse that the disease itself. I survived the 3 week med cycle using long sleeve spf shirts, sunscreen & hats. I did not have to hide inside, but I certainly took extra care in avoiding sun exposure.

    Regarding doxycycline, the rumors are true. Avoid shellfish.

    I hadn't read that but I'll keep in mind. Other than clams I do like seafood and eat it often in the Summer.

    We ended up making a hike up Madison Gulf trail on Friday with a few relining detours for the redliners in the crowd. It was quite pleasant in the morning. Plenty of breezes and water flowing to keep things cool. It was actually cold in the wind over at the Parapet. Madison Hut was quite busy. Heading down Valley Way it got decidedly damper and warmer until the trailhead.
