With my aunt from Norway visiting along with my Mom, I decided that this would be another relatively easy hike to get two older ladies out of the car to see an awesome spot at sunset. We got a little bit lost heading down the Baldwin Trail since when it drops into the Oak Creek flood plain I wasn't sure which way to go. So I just plowed straight to the creek over the river rocks, only to discover that there was no view and the creek was too deep to cross. Spotting somebody on the other shore, I yelled over and found out that easy crossing was just downstream. So we headed downstream a hundred yards on some use trails to discover we were at a great spot. Mom and aunt were in "dressy sandals" in anticipation for dinner, but they handled the rocks, sand, and water just fine. I didn't get to stay as long as I'd wanted because they were ready for dinner, but the light was still pretty good and it allowed for some nice photos while driving back into town.

On a downside, there was a guy who I'm going to stereotype as a European tourist who decided that it was appropriate to go swimming in his tighty-whiteys. This should never be allowed in public. :o

Seems most people in the area arrived from the other side of the creek, where there's a fee for parking. Seems dumb.

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.
