Another training hike to get more experience for the rest of the year. This time we started at the Meridian Trailhead and went counterclockwise. Wonderful day for hiking and met a few people on the trail enjoying the weather. This provided us with just over 7 miles of fairly easy terrain. We saw many, many geckos scurrying all over the trail--more than I had seen on any trail. Could that be the headquarters of some insurance company???
Life is what is happening while you are making other plans.
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.
