"The hiker is experienced with no known medical conditions. It was the man’s first time hiking in the area, Sprong said."
Sounds like he got lost on the trails, being that his car was at First Water, but he ended up at the Canyon Lake TH. Not that such a thing couldn't happen to me, but I have a hunch that he didn't research/prepare for his hike well enough, or have proper equipment to navigate out there. Glad he's okay though.
I'm standing alone on the cliffs of the world
No one ever tends to me
Sitting alone, covered in rays
Some things are so my mind can breath
