Does anyone remember if there were campfires at night at the backcountry AMC/WNMF campsites as recently as the 90's? I think I remember a fire at night at Liberty Spring, as well as Garfield. I'm certain of a fire pit at Ethan Pond in the early 89-90. Just curious.

I remember a fire pit at Garfield shelter in the early 90s.

There was one at 3 Ponds Shelter last fall.

Totally off topic, but I remember as a kid (back in the early 60's) going to Yosemite where they had a "firefall" which was a huge bonfire that they would build on the South Rim, if I remember right. Once the embers burned down, they'd push the whole thing over the cliff with a tractor with a snowblade on it or something like that. Pretty spectacular. Totally not environmentally friendly though, which is why it eventually was stopped.
