|This one is becoming a regular stop, for good reason!|
|Looks out doesn't it?|
|Hey it was supposed to be out!|
Now I know the log was within the fire ring so the chance of a unattended rekindled fire causing a forest fire is pretty low but these logs ARE pine and anyone who has burned pine logs knows that they often pop and shoot out embers from the fire.
|The previous group DID leave a nice pile of pine logs which I left too.|
The rangers that occasionally stop by convey a simple rule regarding campfires: "If it's too hot to touch it's too hot to leave." The log that was smoldering in the fire ring was obviously too hot to touch, so it shouldn't have been left. Walk down to the river, fill a bucket and douse the logs, I'll get off my soapbox now.
Thanks for reading!
