Hiking Warnings

/ 97.3 The Eagle

North Shore Rescue says spring may be here, but it’s still winter on the mountains. Spokesman Mike Danks says hikers tend to make the mistake of only wearing light jackets and shorts on day trips into the mountains. But he says they should carry extra clothes with them and take a fully charged cell phone in the event they get lost. He says the spring season is when rescue crews see the number of calls ramp up from people who go hiking unprepared.
