Will the weather have an impact on site selection?

Beware of the Elements

When picking a camping spot, be sure to consider wind, water and sun.

Wind has a way of blowing smoke and ash around and you won't want any of that in your tent or kitchen.

When it rains, will the water run down the hill into your camp? You bet it will.

And consider the sun when choosing your spot. You'll want shade regardless of the temperature and so will your pets if they come along with you.

I try to find a spot on top of a hill, below a bigger hill when tent camping or backpacking. This allows me to be protected from the wind, and pooling waters.
