Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Ice was forming over rocks so for most of the crossings today I put on my spikes - it's a safe bet. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The ammo has had some TLC Thanks to Brenda V. and who ever else, ty. There is a ton of erosion and some big blow downs still nothing compares to the damage I saw on Airline. On the Davis in the usual area of blow downs, it looked as though there has been some work done. Billy cut some blow downs and eye pokers; we cleared limbs but there are some big boy leaners that look gnarly that still remain.

Lost and Found
Lost and Found: black base layer shirt frozen to a tree, black glove hanging from a tree, black glove frozen to a rock, black gaiter at the kiosk 
Comments: What a day! The ammo has some ice forming but it's mostly dry trail/rock, and there were enough dry rocks to step on until one of the water crossings up high where I opted to keep my spikes on for a little while to deal with the black ice. Didn't need the spikes until the Davis drops down into the trees, it was here I was met with a succession of unavoidable ice. Ice- then standing, running water, switching back to ice. Just before Iso Spur we saw 3 others that came by way of Rocky Branch and although they looked dry and relatively mud-free they said they weren't sure how they would get across one of the water crossings. Those were the only 3 people we saw all day! Came down next to the Cog which I do not enjoy one iota (it's not real hiking) unless you like walking through construction zones - that being said I'm all about safety and coming down the ammonoosuc ravine trail didn't look safe or fun.
