Although the day started out quite windy and cool it soon warmed up to pleasant temps for the day. Started our hike from Roger Trough TH. Along our way, we made sure we looked up Reavis' grave and then took a brief snack break at the Reavis Saddle. Met up with some hikers that were with a group of two horseback riders who told us not to be alarmed if we see quite a bit of blood on the Circlestone climb. One of the horses backed into a prickly brush/tree but was OK. Glad they forewarned us. We did came across the blood and it did look scary We enjoyed a nice lunch break at Circlestone and marveled at the view before heading back.
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.
