summer sun hat

August 2nd, 2009

Right now I’m in Aspen on vacation with my sister and brother-in-law.  A few days before I left, my sister called and warned me that in the summer in the Rockies, the sun is strong so I really need a hat.    I had to laugh—-spending my entire life between Florida and California, I think I know enough about how strong the sun can be.

Still I appreciated her concern, and dutifully packed up a hat in my suitcase and that’s when I came across this one—never worn.  It’s by the San Diego Hat company—they’re light, easy to fold up and take with you and you can shape the brim up like it is here, or down.

Meanwhile, I’ve been in Aspen for just one afternoon but I can tell you my sister is right—in the summer, the sun is strong,  so you really need a hat.

    I live in Denver and know that the sun here is especially stronger-you’re closer to the sun so the UV is stronger. I will also be moving to Africa for 6 months in December and am looking for a hat I can wear that will look good on me! (no baseball caps)

    I was in India and I understand why people wear hat.
    It was 45 degrees Fahrenheit. It is really hot!
