Trail Maintenance Notes

Bugs
Bugs: yes, there were bugs around the Weeks' it got bad. Horse flies, black flies and mosquitoes. The trifecta. Such is life in the great north woods! 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: lost a gaiter somewhere near unknown pond and it was returned to us at the end of the hike. Thank you mystery man, that was very kind of you. 
 
Comments
Comments: What a great hot day to bag these 2 4000'ers! Grabbed another redline and got to traverse the summits North to South. Saw about 10 people all day, including Jeb Bradley. Hot and muggy day as everyone already knows. I love the ruggedness of this traverse and was overjoyed to do it again. Lots of climbing on this trail, 23 miles 6900'. Thank you Denise for a great day out!
