It is very important to pay attention to the weather in the desert.
In the summer:
Wear light layers.
Sunscreen is a must!
Dress in comfortable clothing.
You will probably end up with paw prints or dirt on you!
In the winter:
Dress in layers.
The weather can range from freezing to comfortably warm.
Bring a warm coat. It is likely you will need it!
Hats of Any Sort, Gloves & Sunglasses:
Hats, gloves, and sunglasses are fine to wear in the common areas, but MUST NOT be worn around the wolves. THESE ITEMS = TREATS FOR THE WOLVES!
BRING WATER! This is important at any time of year. We are located in the high desert. It is easy to become dehydrated quite quickly!
