Every time I zip through this area on my way to Vegas I always promise myself that I'll make it back to explore, far away from the hum of Highway 93. Noting cooler afternoon/evening temps and a nearly moonless night (moon set was around 8:30PM), I made good on that promise to do some off trail exploration. This trip was quickly thrown together at the last minute, so it was nearly 2PM when I stopped at one of the pull outs between Wickenburg and Wikieup in the general vicinity of the Santa Maria River. From there I headed out on a mostly western heading toward the Black Mountains and foothills. I turned around after approx. 4 miles. The forest of Joshua trees create a striking backdrop to the mountains and the billions of bright stars. Tempted to come back again in the spring to check out other canyons before the vegetation gets nuked by the summer sun.

How To Put Out a Campfire
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.
