Excluding Alaska, this one at 14,433ft elevation is ranked 2nd highest in our U.S.A. and via this more demanding and more exposed "Black Cloud Trail" route, it proved to be a real "pumpkin" hike.. but also very rewarding! (Fortunately we had a great Colorado weather day for our twelve hour outing)
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.
