"It is HOT, so Drink more than usual" Arizona Warnings Or Dangers Tip by AVG2319

Arizona Warnings and Dangers: 67 reviews and 43 photos

The main mistake tourists make here is WATER -drink lots of it !! especially if you are hiking, biking,etc
The fact that you are not sweating, doesn't mean you don't need fluids replenished.
Do Not hike up a mountain without water! Just because it is cool in the morning, doesn't mean it won't be hot by 10:00
There is a so called "Stupid people" rule here in AZ. You do something stupid, you have to be rescued, you may get fined by the city for the cost of the rescue. So have fun, but don't be dumb :-)
Every year tourists get stuck up on the mountains and have to be rescued or lost and pass out because they bring no water with them or worse yet they die. Drink A LOT of Water, especially if you are not use to the heat.
