[pct-l] Campfires...

I agree.  I had a campfire last summer in the Sierra while backpacking for
the first time in years and years.  As much as the draw to the fire, and the
childhood memories of Yosemite camping from the smell of the smoke made it a
good experience the killing of star gazing and knowing the destruction of
critical forest fuel near the tree line made me regret it.  I can do without
a campfire while backpacking.

Let's outlaw them in all areas outside of car-campsites.  It will do the
biota, air and clear views a favor.  IMHO.
