My hike plans were washed out by heavy rains today. By 3pm conditions were looking a little better, even though still 90% cloud cover. Decided on a quick trip to Siphon Draw. Arrived at trailhead at 4:40pm. Only one other car in the parking lot and I ran into the guy on his way back down. I made it to the bowl in good time..45 minutes. Water was running. Could hear it all around me. Very cool to have this place all to myself. I roamed around the bowl, took a bunch of pictures and started my way down at 6:20pm. About a mile from the trailhead, I contemplated taking out my headlamp, but light was still fair. Felt a sprinkling rain begin to hit my back as I ran down the hill towards a lightning storm that was going on beyond the mountains in the distant northwest. The low light, the rain in my back, the lightning show...what a surreal feeling. Arrived at my vehicle at 6:50pm. Rain started to come down heavy as I left the park.

This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.

How To Put Out a Campfire
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.
