Hey Mt. Lemmon Groupies, did you enjoy the brief, but beautiful rain showers this weekend on the mountain? Cool and refreshing! The forest smelled incredible! The USFS fire ban is still in effect. That means no campfires, using the grills or smoking (smokers may smoke in a vehicle ). You may use a propane campstove to cook with. In case your finding this fire ban too tough for your camping plans, consider this. Having a campfire is wonderful but there's so much more to the fine art of camping such as: setting up your campsite, sleeping in a tent, hiking, card games in the soft glow of a camping lantern, eatting camp food, etc. Around your camp table, share stories of your life or an ancestors life (good way to engage the kids in family history), sing camping songs, etc.Go on Pinterest and search for camping ideas - there's a gazillion. Enjoy the beautiful forest. Listen to the birds call and sing. Sing to the birds, or yourself. Just have a good time on the mountain! If you have any questions about the fire restrictions in place right now call us at 520-576-9198, or 520-576-1492, or 520-576-3091. Happy Camping!☆ See you soon! ... See MoreSee Less
