Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Lower Huntington Ravine Trail - The Cutler river was flowing strong, crossing would require walking through 8-12 inches of fast flowing water, looked up and downstream and found no other options; would avoid for now and take the fire road and link back up at Harvard Cabin, Huntington cross higher up - in the stretch right after the trail and fire road join and separate, a difficult crossing can be done on rocks but they were wet and slippery this day; next .1 mile or so is a stream which you'll need to walk in or rock hop to keep out but nothing that can't be easily navigated. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Huntington ravine trail - between Harvard cabin and where the trail joins the fire road briefly, one step over and one that depending on you height you can climb over or crawl under; one duckunder on right where the trail and fire road join. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Met many out today heading up and down Tuckerman. The stretch of huntington up to the fan might be a bit rocky and some canines might need a little assist. 
Bugs: None down low but out up top, got a nasty bite on the back of my head. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: On a rock at the base of the Fan in Huntington ravine found a ball cap with the logo for the state of Colorado, left it with the staff at the information center  
Comments: Out just doing a little trail exploring today; headed up to the base of the fan in Huntington ravine and then over to hermit lake. Tuckerman it's usual rocky self. Given water levels of Cutler river, would avoid the lower stretch of Huntington ravine trail and use fire road a couple of tenths of a mile up to rejoin the trail at Harvard Cabin, Huntington ravine nice and rocky above this with one stretch with flowing water with lots of rock hopping or just plowing through. Hiked through low clouds below and got above the cloud layer at the Fan. For those wanting to hike the stretch above the fan we didn't see any snow or ice and the rocks looked dry but rain may change that. Took the Raymond path up from the fire road - trail dry with just a few wet spots. Sun was out at Hermit lake; hiked backed down into the cloud layer and fog.
