Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trail crew had come through and removed all blowdowns except trunks on the ground and cleared drains. Great job. Trails had some mud holes and ladder is still missing a rung, but it isn't a problem. Blazes could use repainting but that would only be needed for winter use. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: The mighty tough little dog had an easy and fun day; but he especially enjoyed eating jerky, a couple of dips in the brooks and chasing chippies and squirrels on Lincoln Woods although he never really got close. 
Bugs
Bugs: Almost none; just a couple of skeeters on Wilderness or Lincoln Woods.

Comments
Comments: The forecast sun never came; we hiked in clouds until Bond, often with drizzle or light rain, then the clouds lifted on Bondcliff enough for pictures of all but the highest peaks, remaining overcast until the very end of the hike. It was, nevertheless, a great day as Pepper and I joined 3 co-workers for a day of work hiking the trails, sharing stories and having a nice dinner at the Common Man afterwards. Don finished his 4Ks, Pepper finished his Spring 4Ks, a seasonal grid was completed and Dan and Marty added 4 4Ks to lists they just started working on. Thanks Dan!
