Excellent Hiking Club trip! They planned to go to Sedona, so we went up and did so today. Did Long Canyon, ate at Red Planet Diner, and then ran up Bell Rock, getting down to the parking lot after dark. 3 hours of driving later, we ended up back in CG. Great group, great trip!
Colors are really popping right now in upper Long Canyon. Pretty!

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.
