Did an out and back to the ridge and back. I loved this hike Took the trail to the right of the creekbed, when I didn't wind up missing it! I hooked up with a small group also going up so they gave me incentive to go on up to the top! Their leader was 67 years old. It took us 3 hours to get to the top. I don't think that was bad at all. I don't think it was a bad hike at all, except for the part with the loose shale. Going back down that was a bit scary. Overall I would definitely do it again!
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.
