Most of them look like him.

A surprising majority of victims rescued from Grand Canyon are young, healthy males between the ages of 18 and 40 attempting to hike to the river and back in one day. No matter what your age or health status, here are some tips to help you enjoy the Grand Canyon by Hiking Smart.

* stay hydrated (drink plenty of water and electrolyte drinks)
* avoid hiking in the heat of the day (10am to 4pm)
* eat often (carbohydrates & salty foods)
* rest often (sit in the shade)
* get wet (wet your shirt, hat, & wear a wet bandana around your neck)
* DO NOT attempt to hike down to the river & back in one day

В общем, пожелайте мне не присоединиться к тем 250-ти. Завтра по местному времени (сегодня вечером по Москве) потопаю "rim to rim in one day". 34 км... И зачем мне это надо? :)
