Walking around outdoors and hiking carries inherent risks, like sun burn, bee sting, falling down, the dreaded 'hat hair'... umm... broken bones, falling off cliffs or birds might poop on you. You could get a twisted ankle.. Hike within your limits, know your surrounding, have a plan, go with a partner. Always carry extra water and hike within your limitations. Participate at your own risk. :)
