I normally don't write up all of my in-town training hikes (TSFB), but today was interesting. I looked different than the normal Camelback or recreational hiker since I had about 30lbs in my pack. I met and talked with David McClintock. He is a Certified Grand Canyon Guide with Just Roughin' It tours. We watched 3 Apache Longbow helicopters fly in formation north over Scottsdale, then west over Paradise Valley out to the West Valley. I figure it might have something to do with security for the upcoming SuperBowl XLII. I deleted all of the photos I took today because they looked so ugly with the bad air over the Valley.

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.
