Out of Africa?
This past week brought hazy conditions and dusty skies to Big Bend. The cause? A large plume of dust from Africa's Sahara Desert blew in from over 5,000 miles away! Combine that with our current heat advisory, and it almost feels like the Sahara Desert here!
As temperatures rise well into the triple digits across the region, please be 'heat safe'. Limit outdoor activities to early morning and late evening. Wear light weight, loose fitting clothing. Drink plenty of water and protect yourself from the sun.
