Did the Nature Trail again, this time with Cindy & Max. It started out with a bang! Right when we parked the car, we saw 6 wild turkeys! Max paid attention when they gobbled in unison! It was SO green. Greener than I've ever seen this area. It was also quite humid/misty. Cindy remarked that she felt like we were in Colombia. The mountains were leaking water out of almost every crevice and wash. Streams flowed. Very nice. We saw one deer. Read a cool quote, today, by Shakespeare: "To climb steep hills requires slow pace at first." Anyway, simply another amAZing day!
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.
