It happened AGAIN last week!!

This time it was f*#king climbers. Another fire, another encampment. More bushes cut and trampled to clear more space. Climbers should know better. I seriously don't get the fire-thing. They put it out when someone said something. People are so clueless. It's suicide if an ember blows into the brush down there.

Gotta rant here... there's been more destructive behavior down there this one year than I've seen in the past 10 years. Camping, fires, graffiti, and a whole pile of new random unnecessary trail-cutting causing new erosion issues. I hate to be the harpy but I'm just feeling really pissed off about all this today.

When I visited Table Rock NC in September I was shocked by the many campfire scars which littered nearly every lookout point on top of the mountain. Now my worst fears have come true:

We have no effective systemic practices to teach people fire safety and other outdoors best practices, or even basic respect for others, for that matter.
