Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: One board on crossing below ponds needs nailing back down. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Numerous blowdowns on Ridge Tr. One hilo (too high to go over and too low to go under) which I've got to bring my saw up to eliminate. It's annoying. Also some idiot broke an alcoholic beverage bottle at the vista which needs cleaning up. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Many out today; most leashed and all but a couple good natured. Potential porcupine problem; Emerel had encounter, actually it was his dog I hope. ckeller says he has seen them. 
Bugs: Black flies annoying even with picardin on. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found quietness out at Stella's Bench; all intact and in great shape. 
Comments: Clockwise loop up Fire Tower Tr. and down Ridge Tr. Mid 50's hiker count; not as busy as expected. Gorgeous day on dry trails with great views. Not sure what entrance fee is but assume 5 or 6 bucks a person probably with a max per car fee. Lots of nice conversation today.
