Had another perfect day on a season's end visit to one of my Graham favorites. Got to see golden aspen leaves by the million (which carpeted the ground instead of the trees). Did some trail clean up along the way. I arrived at the new viewpoint about half an hour before sunset, and was again blown away by the views. The sun was shining, but the wind was bitterly cold at 10,000 feet. The sunset turned the forest a golden color on the way back, and I arrived at the trailhead at dusk. With the Pinalenos entirely to myself, I broke out the big camera on the way home, and took some star shots at Hospital Flat. Only saw 1 skunk on the drive down.

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.
