Started pretty late so it was a little warm on the way up. Passed a group of what appeared to be trail maintenance workers. Got to the top around 4pm so I wasn't too worried about running into any "non-hikers." Signed the register, dropped the pack, and started my exploration.

I tried to walk quietly and kept an eye out for service trucks. Saw some no trespassing signs... :whistle: The coast was clear, and I headed right for the cliff face towards the north that I've always wanted to see up close. With the winds picking up, I kept a few good feet between me and the rather large drop. I wish it was easier to capture a sense of scale on drop-off photos.

Headed back to the highpoint, grabbed my pack, and started my descent. Had a baby horned lizard scurry right next to me. Not even a minute later, I ran right into a diamondback. Right next to the one of the buildings, too. In good fashion, I froze up, involuntarily said, "Oh my god," and then reached for the camera. It backed up into some boulders before I could get a good shot. :(

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.
