In Glacier this summer a ranger got extremely upset when he saw smoke
coming from a campsite that was not supposed to have fires.  We calmed
him down by telling him that it was just a zip stove, but he was not
happy. I think that during times of serious drought, a zip could be a
real hazard - or at least perceived as such.

What sections did you have the worst trouble with water?  Was it during
dry years, or every year?
