Sadly, it has been reported recently that some hikers have succumbed to the fierce Arizona heat. Please remember to stay well hydrated while outside this summer! Whether you are doing yard work, hiking, or any other outside activity, there are many ways to stay hydrated. Make sure you hydrate before your activity and have plenty of chilled water available too. Or better yet, have on hand frozen water bottles, so you have chilled water available during your outside activity. Take a minute to slice up oranges, watermelon and/or plenty of grapes, so you can stay hydrated and get some important nutrients during your activity. If you are hiking or traveling, please always let someone know where you are going and have a charged cell phone with you. And, don’t forget the sunscreen! Remember to stay safe, respect the Arizona heat, and have fun this summer!
