Since I had scouted the offtrail route with Grasshopper, on hike day I picked up the Barbershop Trial at FR 139. I followed to its beginning at the Houston Brothers Trail then back to the intersection of Barbershop Canyon and the Barbershop Trail. I waited here with Tom for Grasshopper and GPSJoe. When they arrived we hiked together doing a loop in upper Dane Canyon. We returned to our camp via the car while Grasshopper and GPSJoe retraced their route offtrail through Barbershop Canyon.
This was really a pretty area, especially the canyons.
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.
