Took my boys and met their Scout troop at Fossil. Drive to Payson was crazy, dodging thundercells and lightning. Tapered off near East Verde bridge. Slight drizzle which cooled things for the descent. Did some steel wool shots, but only on bare rock or water. Skunks, lots of skunks, luckily we weren't perfumed. Got up early to try to get sparky shots at the dam, no luck due to equipment malfunction. Played at the dam for several hours and then hiked out. Got pretty hot out there, lots of folks headed down.

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Hikebot recommends using an umbrella to block the sun.
Avoid Heat Illness - do NOT hike when temps exceed 100 degrees, period.
