Campfire Challenge!

There is still plenty of time in summer '09 to get outdoors and enjoy a camping trip with family or friends.  In considering the Leave No Trace principle Minimize Campfire Impacts, this photo represents a less than leave no trace campsite.  Can you identify what could have been done differently to minimize the campfire impacts on this site?
Post your ideas in our comments or email us at and check back on Monday for the results!
Happy Camping...Kate and Tracy

I think that is a big DUH! Build the fire in the fire pit and don't make a new fire ring next to the fire pit. That had to be some real intelligent people to do that. NOT!

Also don't try to burn such big pieces of wood. Bust it up and burn smaller wood for a smaller fire.
