Joe,Dave,Bruce and I got together to do another section of the AZT. We got to sleep in on this one and didn't have to meet until 5:45. My sister(Tereca) agreed to pick us up at the end so we didn't have to set up a shuttle in the morning.THANKS SIS.It was a nice overcast morning with a chance of rain.The rain never came and the overcast was nice to have. I thought this was a pretty nice hike. A few ups and downs but the real climbing started around mile 14 to 16 or so. We got to see some Mule Deer and a crested cactus. The views Of Picket Post and the Supes were Awesome as was the company! Thanks gentlemen for another great hike!
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.
