I gave myself heat stroke on this trip (was confused, feeling drunk & vision was going in & out). I carried far too much weight, not enough water and grossly underestimated the heat. Had to collapse in the shade of an overhang in a dry wash, strip down to my skivvies and rest while sipping water and eating prickly pear that I skinned (for extra moisture).
I learned a lot on this trip.
Super pretty area. I'll return someday better prepared. The desert is nothing to fool around with!
