ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES! Day hike to Annette Lake this morning found a campsite with a fire burning in the ground underneath the fire ring. If you, or someone you know camped at Annette Lake over the weekend, this is the first site as you head South (left) around the lake from the main entry trail. The rocks were still too hot to touch and smoke was coming from the embers and underneath the rocks and around the edges where the fire was burning under the ground. We had zip-locks from snacks to get water and dug up, dug out, and removed rocks to a safe place and eventually were able to pour around 15 gallons of water to extinguish the slow burning underground fire making multiple trips to the lake to scoop up water. Whoever camped here over the weekend was burning one super hot fire and left it with the embers still burning! Please NO FIRES as posted on the entrance road, the trail sign, and an obvious no-brainer. The fire was actually spreading under the pine duff the fire was built upon.
