I had a day to get out into Nature again. It was either this or a portion of Bluff Springs Trail. I chose this as I've never been to the top. I left the Crosscut Trailhead, followed Jacobs Crosscut Trail, then took Siphon Draw Trail up to the top. It was a great hike. Very nice hiking up in the early morning. The top was a little chilly, especially with a sweaty t shirt I had to air dry at the top. I had a fleece I wore to keep me dry and warm while my undershirt dried. Kicked off my boots and warmed up some chicken noodle soup at the top and looked out west across the valley. They were some excellent views. Timed the hike perfectly. The hike down was just as it was getting warm, and the rocks had not begun radiating heat. I did go through quite a lot of water despite it being pretty cool. Amazingly though, on the way down, I saw MANY people hiking up in the heat of the day with absolutely no water on them. Not a good idea. I would have suggested otherwise to those people, but I would have spent the rest of the day doing so, and if there was a hydration emergency, I figured that other hikers would be around. Hopefully they will learn a lesson.

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.
