If you are a tourist and decide to hike anywhere in CA or the Southwest, do not be stupid. If it’s really hot, DO NOT GO OUT! if you must go out, take water, not coke,  not beer or alcohol, take and drink WATER. Also take something like salt or something with electolytes. Don’t be a stupid statistic.
