It was such a fine morning, and I've done all my shopping, so I decided to try one of my favorite short hikes. This trail features continuous views as it switches back-and-forth up the lava flows and through the forests. It zooms up 2000' in 2.5 miles, so it's steep at times. Even with the snow on the trail, it's excellent footing and the climb goes quickly. Of course it starts at over 7000' elevation, so you'll be breathing hard! There was quite a lot of wind (20-25K) and the air temperature at the top was just above freezing. It felt good to close the hood on my jacket and keep my ears warm!

How To Put Out a Campfire
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.
