Trekkin gecko and I hiked Lower Barks Loop then continued on with the Miners Needle Loop. Clouds, some rain, the finally clear skies provided a nice twist to an interesting and fun hike. Some water in Barks, but no real flow. Still a very nice hike. Thanks Kelly for the company and lunch!
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.
