I've always wanted to look down into Willow Valley or West Clear Creek after a big snowstorm, but its tough to get anywhere near the edge in winter with all the FS roads closed. Made a snow shoe attempt yesterday starting from Clints Well, but with 18+ inches of fresh powder to wade through I couldn't make it. Still a great day to play in the snow and bid farewell to 2010.
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.
