I'm not really sure about my distance or elevation. This is ironic for the distance because I road my bike. I actually started at the trailhead for Schultz creek and followed that trail to Schultz Tank. Its full. I then started up the Water line road and found snow after some distance. Eventually the snow became more than I wanted to deal with. This was very close to the last stretch before you enter the Inner Basin, but I just couldn't do it anymore! There are lots of down trees over the road, and I would recommend not attempting this (if looking to do the whole thing) until after Memorial Day at the earliest.
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.
