My first time in Boynton's Backyard and it was a great time.The 29 degrre start only seemed cold for the firsr hour. After that the temps felt pretty good. I didn't make it all the way up Secret Mountain but maybe next time. The views were great. There was one place below the saddle that had red-pink leaves on the trees and all over the ground that was really really cool!! Sorry, my picture does not do it justice.You had to be there to see and feel this section. While holding on to the side of the cliff area trying to make it up Secret Mountain a helicopter came flying down the canyon Below us.That was kinda cool. Great hike and great company. Thanks to Dave for asking, Joe for picking the hike, and Bob for driving and route finding.
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.
