I've sat in 115F shade of the Palms in SV, drinking water just as fast as my body would sweat it out. Didnít do much moving about, except to relocate as the shade moved. I carry a thermometer with me on my trips just for those times I want to know what the temp is. On one particular trip while at the sand dunes in SV I checked the temp of the sand one inch below the surface. The maximum reading on the thermometer is 150F. I removed the thermometer from the sand at 148F, and the temp was still climbing. Itís not a place to go bare foot in the summer.
