Not the best day for outdoor adventures! Especially no hiking with flash flood warnings. Spectacular pictures of the weather system and the thunder awesome as it echoes thru the mountains and canyons #GSENM#igutah#xputah#mountains#optoutside#jeeplife
Thank you Jerry for posting this shot. I was still snoozing when the phone rang early Sunday morning when Rick was called out for a SAR. A family of 3, including an 8yr old had gone for a hike Saturday. Long story short, they ran out of water. Dad went solo back to the car for water. This was about 2pm Saturday. When he returned, his wife and son were no where to be found. Mom and son spent the night on the desert. Rick did a thorough ground search of one area, and then the UHP helicopter came and picked him up to search another area via air. Rick picked up their tracks and they were found safe, but tired and dehydrated. He gave them water and a bit of sugar candy to get their sugar levels up some. Thank you to the awesome UHP pilots that make these searches possible via helicopter. #Sunday#sundaymorning#hiking#water#carrywater#hydrate#SAR#getoutside#travelsafe#drinkwater#prepare#grandstaircase#GSENM#candy Hiking tip: always carry some sugar candy in your pack. It could come in handy if someone needs a sugar pick me up. We also love pure maple syrup shots!!
