Early morning hike on Friday. Got out to the trailhead by 6:15 AM, caught the sunrise. Continued about a half mile up the canyon past the trails end. Going is slow, I can't image how one could bear to do that all the way up to the ridgeline!
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.
