Question of the Day – Are you Worried about becoming Dehydrated when Hiking?

As someone who likes to hike, I was very curious what the cause of death of the family that went hiking one day in August near Yosemite. I was pretty sure it was going to be related to toxic algae blooms in the water they filtered and drank, considering most filters don’t work on cyantoxins found in algae. But it turned out they died of dehydration. Considering how hot it was and how experienced they were, I don’t understand why they didn’t bring more water.

Are you worried about becoming dehydrated when hiking during the summer?
