On my quest to complete all the major summits within the San Francisco Volcanic Field, I decided a cool like this day was a good one to do O'Leary. With no rest on the ascent up, I made the true summit in 1 hour 50 minutes. Ate a gourmet lunch with my butt plopped on the bench mark, and then went over to the lookout tower and chatted with the fire lookout before heading down. The aspens are green down by the Bonito Lava Flow, as are the ones up higher along the road and on the Darton Dome.
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.
