My friend Austin just started hiking lately as a way to get exercise, and he's fallen in love with it. It's great for me because i've never had anyone to go with, and my parents get upset when I tell them I hike by myself. The only places he's hiked are in the Mcdowells, so i decided to show him a real hike, in some real mountains. We decided to go on the Upper Bridge section because i had never done the hike before (done the lower one). I was hoping for running water, but wasn't expecting it. I was actually pretty surprised by the amount of running water, which went on and off in places. It's definetely a tough hike with all the boulder hopping involved, and these boulders are HUGE. I had seen pictures of the fold on one of the canyon walls and made sure we got up to there. I'm taking a geology class next semester, and after seeing this, i'm actually excited about the class (even though it's still school). This was an awesome hike, and i plan on going back when there's more water.

How To Put Out a Campfire
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.
