Night Hiking To Beat The Heat

The heat of the desert can slow you down and it can rob your body of hydration that it needs desperately to function. Also with starting the desert section as early as we can to the beginning of April will make some nights really cold… making us open our eyes at 4:30 AM and if we can wake up and get walking to warm up… our goal could be do as many miles before 10 am. In the scorching afternoon, we can find shade and have a nap and wait it out a little before moving late afternoon to get to the mileage quota that we are gunning for.

It’s hard to be out and exposed in the wind and sun burning your skin as you wonder out loud what the hell are you doing and how many days will be like this.
