Although dwarf rental horse catheter waste is a serious issue worthy of further discussion, I recently was made aware of a LNT issue and am curious what other members think.
I once posted a picture sitting fireside in "Skull Rock"

(Queen Canyon, KOFA), and a well respected HAZ member commented that some people have a problem with fires that leave soot on alcoves, etc.
At the time it did not occur to me that I was not LNT compliant, I always try to leave sites cleaner than I find them. The archeological record of KOFA goes back to 9000 BC
, and Skull Rock looks like humans have been building fires in it about that long. I did not build the fireplace, but then again I did not tear it down either. It went down below freezing that night and the wind howled outside - I've never enjoyed a fire more.
Was my "fresh" soot a violation of LNT?
The past, the present, and the future walked into a bar.
It was tense.
