Return to Paradise. Access still challenging with the road and the rancher but oh so worth it. Explored a little more but the day still got away from us with an evening drive out and car camp up in the hills. Wet footed hiking, some scrambling and a little climbing and a lot of photos. Another great day.

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.
