Telling people they should hike in 115-degree heat is like plopping the London Bridge in the middle of some podunk Arizona town. Oh. Right.
That hiking hard-sell is at the core of the Beat the Heat Strategies Hike. During the two-miler on the Blevins Trail, a ranger will offer practical tips for year-round trekking. We do the 115 thing all the time, so weve got a few tips the ranger probably wont mention:
1) Wear air-conditioned body armor and a beer helmet.
2) Make sure your affairs are in order.
