Beer-free June continues. Somehow managed to hike 7 miles, shower, and eat breakfast before 8am. Took the National to Hidden Valley and hit Guadalupe Ridge on the return trip. Finding parking at 5am is not a problem! A little cloudy out east early on obscured the sunrise over Four Peaks. Otherwise a pretty nice day...tee time in an hour!
"Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit but the highest form of intelligence" -Oscar Wilde
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.
