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!
