Tip #1 for novice hikers: Do not attempt a 2 1/2 hour vertical climb when the temperature’s hovering around 100°. Nearly wound up in the ER…again. Read about my recent hospital visit and enter for a chance to win a pair of wireless CoolStream Bluetooth headphones.
All this in our backyard?! Love the article and headphone review! Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by.
I completely understand. Went on a bike ride last summer during the drought. The temp reached over 100 F and almost had to call 911 from my bicycle.
And then you panic because you’re afraid that you won’t have cell reception!
The asphalt heated up way beyond what the air temperature should have been, and I suppose some toxic fumes mixed in with it all. One doesn’t think about all the factors when one is riding in the shade, lol.
True. So very true.
After hiking in the Canadian Rockies for a few years, the move to Queensland heat in Australia almost killed me! I’m much happier (although also much colder) hiking in Tasmania now 🙂 Really enjoying your blog! Thanks!
Thank you for visiting.
