Wonderfully clear and cool day for a dramatic hike, right here in the valley (or at the border anyway). I departed from the Grassland Drive entrance and did a little running in the less exciting parts of the trail to save some time. The pavement is insane, but it's always a favorite hike!
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.
