Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Gale River was easy rock hopping. Little River on N.Twin Trail was a little tricky finding the best spot to cross but, mostly rock hopping and some logs to assist at the tricky spots. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: no issues. For a short time i wasn't sure i was on the actual trail following east bank of little river due to lack of blazes (if i was indeed on trail) 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: a few happy pups well behaved. 
Bugs: nothing major. flies in a few spots.

Comments: A beautiful day, although very hot! went through 3 liters + of water. decided to do the "loop" and take my chances finding a ride or roadwalk. Thankfully I did. I suggest a car spot if possible for anyone doing the same. The holiday mob was obviously on more popular peaks today. saw a few groups but not the crowd i was expecting. It's great to be back after a long spring ice season away.
