One of the two trails through Jewel of the Creek Preserve, the Harry I. Dalton trail, is heavily used. After spring rains and the receding flood of Cave Creek, tender grass grows everywhere. Soon after seeding, the desert heat will turn this grass into tinder, easily ignited by any dropped cigarette butt. Black skeletons of the last conflagration cast shadows across the trail.
