Your Oversights Can Have Horrific Consequences

It was late in the afternoon and I was hiking through the woods in Utah’s Unita Mountains. I smelled smoke, then spotted the remains of a campfire, still smoking. As you probably know, wildfires are a growing problem in the West and it only takes a small spark to start a horrific blaze. I spent the next ten minutes making certain someone else’s campfire was truly out.

It might not have spread. It might not have been a big deal. Or it might have been someone else’s small oversight that caused a disaster.

Don’t make other people clean up your messes. Pay attention.
