Decided to head out for a day hike on Sunday. Found this hike on HAZ and the wife the dog and I headed out from Mesa around 6am. Arrived at the TH about 8:30 and noticed some unmelted snow on the ground but it was going to be a nice day so we headed out. There was much more snow than anticipated but the trail was well defined thru the snow. The creek was flowing well due to the melting snow and the wife took some pics of the falls with her new camera. As we gained elevation there was more snow to navigate thru and it was getting tougher but we made it all the way to knolls hole and had lunch. We returned the same way we came, took some more pics and arrived back at the truck around 2pm, and headed back down FS410 witch was in very good shape and looked well maintained.
We are planning a trip back in the fall to see all the colors everybody mentions in there trip logs. Was a great hike and plan to see more of the Sierra Anches in the future.
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.
