Stay Safe In Sedona And Drink Water
posted on Jul 16, 2015
The news this past week regarding summer time safety in Sedona and Arizona has led to three deaths and numerous rescues. All could have been avoided provided the hikers brought enough water and properly hydrated before their excursions.
On a hike you should carry at least a quart of water for each hour your hiking. You should also over compensate by filling up with as much water before you set out.
The summer weather can be deceiving, temperatures can hover around 90 and low humidity you lose a lot of moisture from your body. Your sweat dries immediately and the next thing you know, your dying of thirst.
Symptoms include very red skin color, body cramps and blurred vision. If you or you're hiking partners are experiencing these symptoms, call or send for help immediately.
Sedona is beautiful and the hiking is spectacular if you bring along plenty of water. Be safe and stay hydrated.
