Last week, I was so gleeful because my associate and I finally got some much-needed rain in Phoenix, then and while some people who live here will complain about the rain, I welcomed the showers with open arms… When it rains here, it means that the temperature will be cooler outside; In fact, after a downpour, my associate and I sometimes get 2 or 3 days of nicer weather.
When this happens, I usually take fortune of the locales that I skip when the weather is too hot to manage.
I love going to the hiking trails after it rains because the trails are so much better when the desert heat isn’t blistering… Of course, on the hiking trails, there are no air conditioner or cooling stations, so there is nowhere to find reprieve from the heat, but some trails have water stations located at the trailheads, where you can fill a bottle with cool water. Many of the trails have no shaded areas, which makes them even harder to trek when it’s brutally hot. So, I always make sure that I take fortune of those days when it’s nice outside & I am not yearning to remain in the air conditioner because the hot & cold temperatures are scorching hot, but because there is no air conditioner in the wilderness, my associate and I must take extra precautions to make sure that our bodies don’t overheat. Some people love hiking in the brutally hot weather, although I would rather wait for cooler hot & cold temperatures. Why risk my life to go hiking on a trail that can be accessed when the weather is much nicer outside? I would much rather stay house in my comfortable air conditioner on those days.
