Out and about for some fall shots. Road up to fire lookout by Workman Creek in Sierra Anchas is now open and some nice reds and golds, pastels up there in the maples. At the top of the Pinals the Aspen grove is peaked and has some nice understory of golds and some reds mixed in, maples are still working on turning but some nice trees. Couldn't hike much secondary to a broken bone in my foot but I am progessing in my gimping along. Trekking poles make great crutch substitutions.

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.
