There is the risk of injury at any field site; however, this risk can be greatly minimized by using good judgement and understanding the hazards that surround you. When viewing outcrops near roads, stay as far from the road as possible. Avoid climbing outcrops, and stick to paths. Always be sure to visit field sites with at least one other person, and make sure to have local emergency numbers on hand.
