To my surprise I was able to get 2 takers for a 3:00 departure for a trip up to hike The Baldy Loop. Thanks Bob and Dave, It's always a pleasure to hike with you guys. We started the hike at the East Fork around 7:00am. This hike has a lot to offer.Lots of pine trees and Aspen. Some cool rock formations. Great views. Some hiking along the river.Lots of shade. A good climb and lots of trees to climb over for a good workout. We did see some debris from a Plane Crash towards the top of the East Fork side. we saw one boundary sign on the way up but the signs at the top are gone. We didn't see anybody on trail until about a mile down the West Fork side. Only saw about 10 people total. Great hike,Great weather. Might do this again in the Fall.
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.
