In order for everyone to have a fun safe field experience please keep the following in

      While riding in the vans seatbelts must be worn at all times.

      We will be walking/hiking on rough uneven terrain. Wear shoes/boots with good
       traction soles and ankle support (if needed).

      Sun exposure may be extreme. Wear clothing and sunscreen adequate to protect
       your skin. Sunglasses are recommended to protect your eyes.

      Poisonous snakes and scorpions will be found in this environment. Be careful
       where you place your feet and hands.

       cold temperatures.

      Keep your tent zipped closed to avoid insects and scorpions from entering.
