Caution For Hikers

The Powell County Search and Rescue organization is warning hikers about the importance of taking and drinking plenty of water.”Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I can’t express it enough. Your body loses water when you start sweating, you’re already starting to dehydrate,” said Lisa Johnson with Powell County Search and Rescue.Johnson also says to look out for signs of dehydration, “dizziness, a lot of times you’re confused. The one thing that I did find out is your breath, your breath will start feeling drying, you’re tongue from the saliva dehydrating and you’ll get a bad taste in your mouth and that’s one of your biggest signs of dehydration.”
