Okay, now that it's officially summer (108 today -ugh!) I thought it would be nice to share a gem from early spring (March 7), a definite must see when it's rainy. And it gives you something to get out for even when it's too wet to hike! This was a complete surprise to me, I had never been to Fish Creek Canyon during a rain storm, and see the water falling everywhere was a real treat.
Just keep thinking, "It WILL cool down..." and that may help get you through the summer!
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
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.
