I agree about fire rings they also make people think because somebody had a fire it is ok.
It seems that people are beginning to realize that outdoors usage and "comfort, fun, social"fire
are not ok.A few years back i made a post about being against social fires and got roasted by fellow
I made the post after coming back from a week in and around Kennedy Meadows where we ran across 2 deserted
camp sites with smoldering fires.
I'm sure any of our members of this form have also come across fires left unattended or abandoned.
At times we have ended up in spots that have limited sites only to find the ground so filthy with remains of fire that i would refuse to let our cat (could be your dog} to enjoy. And i have found pay camp sites just as bad.
My thoughts may be extreme but i would back the idea of zero camp fires in any area that has camp sites.
Yes i am old and grouchy.
