Summertime in Ruidoso New Mexico means fun in the sun- hiking, warm campfires, outdoor grilling, swimming and more! While enjoying time in nature is great for your physical and mental health, it is important to practice the proper safety guidelines. As temperatures increase, certain safety precautions that need to be adhered to ensure your wellbeing.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind to remain safe all summer long:
Hiking– When hiking it is important to have the proper gear. Always wear hiking boots because they provide stability when navigating unlevel terrain. Remember to look back at your trail and keep a GPS device to help you keep track of where you are to keep from getting lost.
Grilling– Many parks have public charcoal grills to use for grilling, if you would like to bring your own barbeque pit remember to check with the park rules first. Before starting a fire check that the grill is thoroughly cleaned. Wear clothing that is comfortable but not loose, so it won’t interfere with the fire. Lastly, keep a fire extinguisher nearby to quickly put out dangerous fires. Innsbrook Village Country Club & Resort has a variety of beautiful townhomes and condos for rent, all of which have a propane grill and fully equipped kitchens!
Swimming– Always swim with a partner especially if you are not in water without a lifeguard nearby. While swimming this summer, be sure that the area is well-lit and don’t swim in areas where it is too deep to see the bottom of the pool. Be sure to visit the heated swimming pool during your stay at Innsbrook Village Country Club & Resort.
Campfires– Building a campfire may sound simple, but it a complex process that must be done exactly right to keep everyone safe. To build a campfire, first you need to locate a water supply. It is best to build fires close to a body of water like a lake or river and have a bucket available. Next, you need to gather wood but be sure not to cut trees or branches- like trees will not burn properly and this harms the environment. An easy fire building method is to layer the kindling in an upright position-like a teepee.
