While we may be in the later days of summer, wildfire season is still in full swing. Thankfully, this year in California we haven’t heard nearly the amount of devastating blazes as in the past (knock on wood). But that doesn’t mean we’re out of the weeds yet, as the Santa Ana winds start to blow in October, they’ll provide the fuel for those debilitating fires we’ve had in the past as the land sits bone dry from a long, hot, rainless summer.
So as you enjoy your late summer/early autumn hikes in the Golden State, make sure to do your part to keep any open flame away from these parched lands that you’ve grown to love. That doesn’t mean you can’t partake in the benefits of cannabis, which is oftentimes best enjoyed outside.
So we made a list of our favorite flame-free products to take with you on your next sojourn to heed the call of the mountains. Just remember to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
For when you’re sitting around the fire pit after a long day of hiking and jumping in newly-discovered swimming holes, this is the perfect replacement for the dehydrating bottle of whiskey. Just make sure you put out that fire before you doze off under the stars and to pack out the vape pen when you’re done.
