Comments: Work started on the LWT. The parking lot will remain open. The crew boss said hikers may have to wait until it is safe to bypass the construction but they will stop work periodically to let hikers thru. They will be working from 8-5 so early/late starts/finishes will not be impacted. Linked up with Bill Schor & Steve Barbour at the bottom of the Owl Slide. Both of these guys are fun to hike with. Made the last peak and the walk out go by fast.
