High temperatures may have contributed to a hiker's death Tuesday in a Wayne County canyon.
The man was in Horseshoe Canyon when a group of hikers came upon him about 1 p.m., according to a county press release. The man asked them for food and water, which they gave him. He also asked them to take care of his dog, which was in his car at the trailhead.
The group of hikers relayed the man's request to another group of hikers, who went back to the trailhead and let the man's dog out of the car. As of 10:30 p.m., the man still hadn't returned to the car, so the group called search and rescue crews.
