It's Getting Hot!

With temperatures predicted to reach 100 degrees this weekend, it's too hot for Lake Mead hikes. If you want to hike at Red Rock, get an early start and wear a cotton shirt. Cotton retains moisture, which will keep you cool. Make sure to bring lots of water.
This is the weekend to hike in Mt. Charleston. Nick reported that Mummy Mountain is doable via the normal route. Also Big Falls, Little Falls, Mary Jane Falls, and Fletcher Canyon are all doable (little or no snow). Get out and hike!
We are off to Havasupai this weekend. It's our 4th annual trip and one of my favorite trips of the year. There are a lot of first timers this year. I am sure they will have fun.
