    ... areas. Although there have been occasional rain here and there, the fire danger remained high that 'no campfire' mandates were in effect region-wide.

    It rained my final two days at GNP and with the Arizona heat having thinned out my blood, I got cold rather easily. This was not my first rodeo so I brought along with me proper layering in anticipation of the cold and rain. However, it seemed no amount of layering was enough once I ...
