Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Used trail and all 3 crossings on way up. Went directly across and there may have been easier route with some exploring. First two involved a few slightly submerged rocks while the third crossing was much easier. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Firewardens Tr. has several blowdowns and is quite grown in; but still very easy to follow for an abandoned trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Congrats to Kali on Grid finish!! There are puddles on Twinway but I'd still bring extra for them. 
Bugs: They were around but movement and couple dosings of deet kept them away. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Towel and hat on North Twin Tr.(would've hauled them out if going back same way; hopefully someone else did). 
Comments: Another nice hiking day. Trails all fine. Some standing water on Twinway between South Twin & Guyot and on North Twin Spur. Trails drier on the other side of Guyot. Firewardens Tr. was a nice soft descent at the end of a long day. Nice running into some posters from here and VFTT.
