It's Dinner time and time for my last leg of the "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner" Hike Day. My left knee was hurting a little so on the way to Elden I made a pit stop at Circle K for some IB and a Diet Dew. I hit the Trailhead at 5:22pm (fashionably late) and off I go. This one had plenty of hikers unlike the other two.

As I ascend I can feel I have lost some of my vigor. I am 44 so I blame it on "Low T". Actually this trail reminds me of the last mile up Mt Lemmon which is also pretty taxing. Good news is that it is a short up so I remain focused on the prize. Upon reaching the Fire Tower/Summit I see that this one is not open to the Public. Bummer that would have been super cool to go inside 3 Fire Lookouts in the same day. Took my photos and down I went. It sure felt great to be descending the final stretch of my amazing day! I think this may just be the first annual "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner" Hike excursion.

Side note: Thanks to whomever put in all the logs and rocks to create an almost staircase to the summit. Where they don't exist it can be quite slippery going down. Cheers!

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.
