A word about your comfort and safety

The high plateau enjoys a moderate climate, but summer temperatures can reach 100-plus degrees.  Many outdoor attractions on the Dinosaur Diamond are in underdeveloped areas with no shade and no drinking water.  For hikes recommended you have one gallon per person per day. Remember to wear sunscreen, a protective hat.  You body needs more water in our arid climate than it does at home.
