This was a spur of the moment lunch break hike for me. I found a nice overlook of the Jacobson Creek gorge/waterfalls. Down-canyon were views of the desert, and up-canyon were views of 9000+ foot ridges. The ash trees and box elders were just starting to change color. Perfect temps and a relaxing 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.
