The desert is a fickle and harsh land, albeit an alluring one. Most people know that the desert is hot. That is an obvious statement. But what some may not be aware of is that temperatures can fluctuate between 100 degrees fahrenheit during the day in summer all the way down to the low 40s and 50s in the evening. The extreme change in temperature can be hard on the body. Water is literally a lifesaver in the desert. Be prepared for your adventure with helpful tips by clicking here.
