What I saw was pretty good. Brush and scrub fire creeping along in lower open areas. I am concerned as it is so hot and if the wind comes up, but already certain areas had burned out. I hiked in by the Deer Creek cabins, fire crews at the parking camping area near the gate and at the cabins. I avoided most every one, went in on the Tortilla trail spur from the cabins and up to Mud Spring. China peak had some scorch areas on the side but mostly it was smokey and all spread out. There were several smoke columns over the shoulder of China on the Sycamore canyon side but I did not see what the fire was doing there. From Mud spring is a pack trail on TOPO which can be hard to find in tall spring grasses but I had no problem as it headed toward China Peak's west and south side. It will eventually connect to the poor trail in Sycamore canyon or you can back track to the Tortilla trail. I then left the trail, always a chancy proposition in the Galiuros. I got cliffed out once but got past that, saw an excellent slick rocked canyon section I'll need to come back to in the rains, then took pics of the fire which I was pretty much able to walk up to a section of. It was rather warm by this time so I headed to the car. Leaving met a forest service fellow getting ready to close a couple of the TH's. I voiced my concerns and he stated policy. I don't have a problem with burning underbrush but if it gets into the big timber I don't want to see black sticks. At this time, I do not see how this could become a big conflagration unless it gets some help.
