Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All rock manageable. The waterfall on the GRT was low and easy to get down.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All trails are in great shape. There are a few old blow downs that now seem like old friends rather than a nuisance... I now remember when the become step overs in winter as opposed to walk unders.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Loved seeing each and every pooch on the trails. Dogs make it such a joy to hike. 
Bugs: Gone to warmer climes... :)

Comments: Weekend trip over these 4 peaks for various rounds, and the month of October (29 total now). All trails are in great shape. I am still not a fan of the Garfield Ridge Trail. Too many PUDS! All the blow downs are old and have been reported several time. Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and I am glad I took the opportunity for one last camp out. Isis handled the cold temps like a boss by huddling and hogging my sleeping bag!
