Went early today. First to the Summit for the day. Lots of bees by the mailbox. Hopefully the gentleman who dislocated his shoulder got some help from the Boyscout troop (about 50 of them) who were coming up the trail. Great weather for my first trip to the top. Got off the main trail before coming to the top, we ended up following some cairns and not the white, green, or brown paint spots, but finally reached the mailbox. Having the GPS track from HikeArizona.com really saved the day as we almost missed the turn off the AZ trail. Thanks HikeArizon.com!!!!!!
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.
