So it’s like 150 degrees out (I’m exaggerating of course, it’s only 147 1/2 degrees). If you’re brave enough to hiking (which if its this weekend should be done early with a ton a drinking water and maybe a cooler full of popsicles), you’ll need to cool off afterwards. So why not pair up hiking and swimming!?
