Was in the area doing a little off trail exploring and looking for geocaches when I disturbed a couple of wild turkeys in the brush. Thought I was being attacked by a bear....Long story, but sufice to say I was BLUFF charged by a bear years ago and since then everything is a bear untill proven otherwise. Got some pictures of the turkeys and they didn't apear to be the brightest creatures on the planet. ...Although they do do a great bear imitation.
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.
