Hiked Go John trail today in Cave Creek. Still lots of flowers- desert bluebell, desert chicory, lupines, poppies, hedgehog cactus in bloom. My daughter heard and then saw a rattle snake just off the trail.
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.
