Took the family on the annual Lake Powell houseboat adventure, complete with kayaks and fishing. I had great luck catching catfish in my kayak against the salt cedars that are now underwater. At the end of one of the coves I found a beaver eating willows!! The lake is coming up 11-12 inches per day! We spent 4 days on the lake, so I estimated my mileage. Great weather--not too hot, great scenery and great company.
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.
