When I saw Te-wa post this trip I knew I had to go. It was definitely worth it. My brother, wife and I packed up and took off Friday afternoon, arriving @ Knoll Lake about 8:30pm. We set up camp hoping there would be enough room for everyone who was coming up Saturday. Friday night the wind died down and it was a calm and peaceful night, with the exception of the hooting owl all night. Saturday morning arrived and the cold wind was back. We jumped @ the early opportunity to fish the lake but only ended up with 1 Rainbow. I had to keep him against my will as he took the hook in the throat. The rest of the HAZ crew arrived while we were making our pizza for lunch and then fun began. Everyone went about their plans and then we had a great time around the fire with music, entertainment and drinks. Sunday we woke up to the cold and wind and packed it up to head back to the TH. It was a pleasure meeting everyone. We had a great time and are definitely looking forward to the next trip! Thanks Te-wa for putting this together!
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.
