Jessica and I checked out Thunderbird Park for the first time. Would have been a great day if it wasn't so windy. The fiddleneck is very thick and quite a bit taller than at Piestewa right now. The brittlebush is at about the same stage, just a week or so before going nuts. The north side of the H3 has the nicest color. Oddly enough the best part is along the road to the bridge on the H3. There's a jungle of something growing that looks pretty promising. Kind of looks like columbine skeletons, wonder what it'll be... The Wild Heliotrope smells almost as rancid as Scorpion Weed along stretches when you catch a drift.
Lots of people. Reminds me of Pima Canyon at South Mountain, my long lost home
More diverse here with young to older folks.
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.
