Starlight, Starbright...

Let's not have a wildfire tonight!

The e-tour stopped in at a campground last night outside St. Louis, and found corn fields rustling, sprawling grassy camp spots, and four abandoned campfires. Yes, four! This one took 40 liters of water to cool down. After the evening's unsettling discoveries, Tara found something to assuage her fears.

There is plenty of information out there on properly putting out campfires. We at Leave No Trace Center are always striving to Minimize Campfire Impacts if and when we have one.

Be Safe Out There!
Mark and Tara
