RS&BBMMOO Wouldn’t the dog and the baby have shown signs of heat distress long before they got down to the river? Marble Point is a great vantage point to view the surroundings and consider options. I’m trying to understand this from their POV but the fact there is a dog and a baby to consider is beyond my comprehension. The choice of this hike, on this day, under those conditions makes absolutely no sense.
Well, since many of us are perseverating our theories (understandably, since we each have our unique perspectives and so desperately want to help figure this mystery out), I'll join in but briefly. One of my first posts on this case questioned how far the family actually hiked. And since our fellow paramedic and veterinarian shared clinical data on the effects of heat on wee babies and furry dogs, I believe one or both of the dependents were incapacitated within 30 minutes, as I think you suggest.
