Before setting out, always check the latest weather forecast. In case conditions take a turn for the worse, you need to be aware of your options in regards to:
- Possible evacuation routes.
- Emergency shelters or campsites.
- River crossings that may become impassable during heavy rains.
- Canyons which may pose a flash flood danger in the event of a sudden downpour.
- Exposed areas such as treeless ridgelines……….whereabouts can you descend if an electrical storm is approaching?
