Living or going to see Phoenix AZ can be a matter of life or death, but it’s unfortunate how multiple people take the severity of the serious heat for granted, and they don’t understand that our bodies can only bare but so much, and they will push themselves to unimaginable limits, but perhaps you already know that Phoenix is literally in the middle of the desert, so it’s no surprise that it gets absolutely hot here.
In fact, the temperature can particularly rise into the triple digit range; And every year, there is consistently some kind of report about people being rescued due to heat exhaustion or even worse, some have succumbed to it.
The trails have proven to be dangerous because multiple of them have no locale to cool down from the serious uneven temperatures. I moved to Phoenix about 20 years ago, and over the years, I have noticed that the temperature has gotten hotter and hotter. And when the weather is scorching hot outside, I don’t mind staying inside in the air conditioning; Of course, there are times that I do go out, however I frequent locales that have air conditioning. They include museums, malls, art galleries, theaters, and more. If I go to a concert, it’s usually at night or inside a locale with weather conditions control, but don’t get me wrong, I love spending time in natural spaces as well, but those natural spaces can be detrimental to my health, but so, I would rather skip going hiking during the summertime, and opt for locales with air conditioning instead, and that includes the comfort of my own home.
