Dog-Related Notes

Lost and Found
Lost and Found: N.A. 
Comments: USFS contractors did a fine job repairing Livermore Trail from TS Irere damage; gullies in middle of trail between the two TLT entrances filled in, drainage trenches along sides deepened, 18" culverts replaced, but perhaps most important, several water bars established across trail. Two 6-ft diameter culverts installed in lower flat section, with several more cached at Greeley Pond Trailhead waiting for installation somewhere, presumably on lower part of Greeley Pond Trail. North Tripyramid Slide looked very intimidating, and no tracks seen for either end of the loop. Scaur Trail from WV a nice alternative to Pine Bend Brook, and much closer trailhead than the Kanc when approaching from the south.
