Millions living in a condensed area of the desert pointing the finger at grass seems odd to me.

Re: How do you deal with sweat?

I can't fathom not wearing a hat, the sweat rolls into the eyes without a sweat band According to a landslide of sources, sweat works by evaporative cooling. Typically I dry my face often. I've tried two days now ascending Piestewa, only wiping my face at the half and summit. Yesterday without a ha...
