Hiked up into the park and around on some trails to meet my family at the Sunset Point Vista. It was a great way for us each to have the experience that we wanted. Saw some beautiful flowers, a very sleepy rattler and not a single person until we hit the main trail system (then it was packed, as expected).
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.
