Your Kidding Right?! ..3 Search and Rescues per day

How's that for statistics folks?

Make you wonder?
Time for us to get Educated!

Guess whats coming? The Heat man!! Not the cops, well unless you haven't paid attention, then it just might be our local public service Men & Women. Temperatures are rising and summer is around the corner. Over the last Three years our Search and Rescues have tripled (averaging three per day)!!! Ouch!! That's painful! As a local tour guide we made it a Policy to send out confirmation emails that stress the facts that it is important to stay hydrated. Upon guests arrival we reiterate the facts about why we need to stay hydrated for any activity that we choose to take part in here in the Sedona/Verde Valley (The Southwest).

I personally have had people tell me that they don't drink water. Wait?...What?! Are you serious?? Well my friends, being hydrated does NOT mean drinking sodas, energy drinks, coffee, ALCOHOL, etc. If your thirsty, Guess What?? YOUR DEHYDRATED!! Drink water save yourself!

Signs of Dehydration:

1.   Thirst
2.   Fatigue and /or dizziness
3.   Headache
4.   Bad breath
5.   Muscle cramps
6.   Foggy thinking and poor concentration
7.   Dull, dry skin and/or pronounced wrinkes
8.   Back or joint ache
9.   Infrequent urination
10. Mood swings

Bloomin Onion already? What the Heck?

The Century Plant Agave is blooming a tad early this year. Along with other odd-timed flowerings and budding. It makes us think we don't know what is going to happen next. But then again, Mother Nature RULES!

My favorite scent in Sedona; Ceanothus is blooming sporadically throughout the area as well.
