We rescued a hiker who was on trail for only 30 minutes! There is no good reason to be on the trails this next week or so. Excessive heat warnings in effect. Keep yourself (and the rescuers) safe and find some inside stuff to do! #HeatKills #CommunityFirst— Golder Ranch Fire (@GRFDAZ) June 12, 2021
