Beautiful fall hike. Colors were a little past prime, but still very sweet. Great area, very quiet and secluded. No other hikers to be seen, but a couple deer, some elk, and lots of birds. Not much flow at the falls, but several pools of water throughout the trip.
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.
