Rincon Peak has always been one of the more challenging hikes and most liked on my list. Normally I would not consider doing this hike in the month of May, however with the cooler temps we are having recently I decided this may be a good time to do it again. gpsjoe and I had an early start and during the whole 16 miles never did we feel uncomfortable warm. The temps were perfect and even on the peak hardly any wind nor annoying bugs. It was a pleasure too not having any snow to content with, made that last mile and a half a lot easier. Although when coming down from the peak I saw out of the corner of my eye a small patch of snow hidden in a shady spot.
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.
