Jessica and I explored another route. We found a half dozen to a dozen varieties of wildflowers. Very isolated and all were itty bitty cousins of a good season. About as warm as you want it to be in January. Nice loop. Back on trail everyone we passed was friendly!
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.
