Saturday morning we left our car at the northeast base of Wahl Knoll and walked, generally, west and south over the knoll, across South Fork of Little Colorado River, over Pool Knoll to the East Fork. Wind on the prairie was quite strong but warm and the air was crystal clear. We continued on to the West Fork and followed it down to Greer, where we overnighted at one of the local inns. Sunday morning we headed directly east in lighter but much cooler wind. At the South Fork we turned downstream and walked a few miles along the creek through country we previously thought too brushy for hiking. Finally, we ascended a nameless canyon back to our car. Despite the breeze, we enjoyed a wonderful weekend.
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.
