4. Give uphill hikers “Right of Way”.

5. Walk single file or two by two, only if the width of the trail permits.

6. Do not walking on the trail edges, this widens the trail making a giant swath through nature.

What’s Cooking?
How do we know when its done?
We use the smell test.
When it smells done, its done.
When it smells burnt, its burnt
and
When you can't smell it,
its not done.
