1st trip
Did the loop counterclockwise with the Tortoise. Great day out, perfect weather. Found Whiskey, LaBarge & Bluff Spring locations; Whiskey was running a trickle, LaBarge a little better, Bluff Spring was bone dry. Didn't see anybody out until we came to the turnoff to Bluff Spring. The streams are slowing down and drying up too, algae really starting to set in. Get out while you can, before it all stagnates. Very little wildlife out today, surprisingly.

We considered trying to climb Miner's Needle, has anyone found a non-technical route for it?

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.
