To get back to fireworks in the mountains: It's stupid. One mistake and thousands of acres in Mt. Charleston could be destroyed. Mt. Charleston is a boxed in canyon. There's only one way out. So, if you are headed to the mountains this weekend, leave the fireworks at home.
For the last 10 years or more I have been hiking to Mack's Peak in Mt. Charleston on the 4th of July. Why? It's a short hike, so people can be back in plenty of time to watch fireworks.
Have a good 4th of July and I will see you on a summit,
