Summer temperatures often reach above 100 degrees F, so be sure to carry water on all adventures. Flash floods in the canyons are also a threat. It is difficult to predict incoming weather when deep within a canyon so check reports before venturing into any narrow canyon areas.

Report: toughest part was finding a spoton the beach. Biggest reward was that once we did, the water was clean and free of moss. suggestion: If you want to go, reserve a spot for the day, so you don't have to fight with crowds, and drive around all day looking for a spot to be.
