Spring has arrived in Utah. Astronomical spring has begun, and the temperatures have been on the rise. We've been sleeping with our bedroom window open. We were one number shy of 80 degrees Fahrenheit this past weekend. Three record highs have been broken since last Tuesday. I've heard that mosquitoes are already buzzing around the wildlife refuges north of Salt Lake City. And I have the fever to get outside and hike. Friends have already been on trails along the Wasatch Front, and I find myself eagerly looking forward to following suit.
