Henry David Thoreau said, “The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.” There’s something about a campfire that is truly magical. At the end of a long day of hiking and exploration, gathering around the fire for songs and conversation is an amazing experience for a family.
