Summer is here and with it, comes triple digit temperatures.
Even the prairie dogs and birds at Red Bud Park sought refuge from the heat.
Despite this, many people headed outside to enjoy the sunshine.
"We just try to come outside anytime of year that we can, of course when it's so hot we try to come earliers so we still have a little bit of shade to walk in," says Virginia Armstrong, who took a trip out to Red Bud Park with her husband, Gerry, today.
Many people who headed outside to work out this morning applied an extra layer of sunscreen and increased their water intake.
A family even went to Minter Park to picnic under the shade trees.
Extreme heat will stay in the forecast for the next few days and if you plan on heading outside, avoid the hottest part of the day.
Also keep a look out for signs of heat exhaustion, including fatigue and dizziness.
