Some great advice for moutain travelers.
The mountains are really beautiful this year.There are some things you should do to take care of yourself while traveling in them
1 Always walk in pairs. You may think if you twist and ankle on a wooded hike you can use your cell phone for help. I am here to tell despite what you see on TV with the guy in the Crowd Or C Z Jones coming to your do or there are a lot of dead spots.
2 Always carry water and some power bars. Hikes up and down hills over tough terrain take longer than you think.
3 Always where hiking shoes and carry a compass. It is a good idea if you know how to use one too.
4 Most of all be careful with fire. We have had a lot of rain this spring but in this kind of heat a cigarette butt or match can really cause a great deal of damage So have fun but use a little sense and enjoy Our great Mountains.
