Another Snow Day for work and I couldn't stand the thought of staying in the house again. I risked life and limb driving down to Sedona (it took 1.5 hrs on I-17), but it was well worth it. Water was running EVERYWHERE, and I chose Soldier Pass for my hike/photo shoot in the rain/snow/fog. Got some great view shots of fog on CoffeePot and surrounding areas, and huge water in the 7 Sacred Pools. Had to take the jeep trail 'cause I couldn't get over the wash. It's probably just as well--the locals are thinking that Devil's Kitchen is going to collapse more with all this runoff. After a couple hours of exploring, I called it quits and headed home while the roads were good.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
