Safety tips for travel in the desert:
*Bring water and a hat and lots of sunscreen.
*Wear walking (hiking/closed toe) shoes and pants that cover your legs.
*Have a small jacket with you. It's been hot, but the wind picks up in the evening and it can get very chilly.
*You may wish to bring a folding chair.
*Keep an eye out for snakes and wildlife.
*Ants in your pants if you stand on their colony.
*No smoking or open flames.
*Please dispose of any litter properly, and respect the land.
