Awww sad news.
Honestly, I have never hiked in weather above 85 degrees and I was hating life. I can't imagine I would have been experienced enough to do what they tried to do.
if you start early enough it is usually no big deal.
It's just the heat most people are not used to.
I backpacked last weekend in 112F. But I knew what I was getting into and was prepared for it.
It was still one of the tougher hikes I did because of the heat
unfortunately, many visitors to the desert Southwest underestimate how fast heat can kill and that you really need to be prepared. It's also really important to know the first signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Oh my gosh...I hate heat and the sun.
Kudos to you *claps*.
I struggle to walk outside in 100 degree weather just to let my dog into the house lol
It's hard to believe that you still can get disoriented on this trail with so many signs nowadays, but I guess we are all used to hikes in remote areas and know how to get along and find our route.
