||Dogs seemed to be having a better time than than their owners. Especially a Bermise/Poodle mix pooch who was being one with the mud. |
||A few. Predictably as the air warmed up and we slowed down. It was a long winter they're hungry. But they were not moving tat fast, which made swatting a charm. |
|Lost and Found:
||Sighted a pair of leather gloves at crawford trailhead bench. ||
||Copious mud, but you knew that already! ;-)|
Some easily avoidable monorail on Crawford between Crawford /Mizpah Cutoff junction. More significant monorail between Mt Pierce and Mizpah, but nothing too crazy. All will be gone within 10 days, imho.
6 trail runners sighted. 2 women running with their dogs who were incredibly polite and warned us they were coming our way. 4 men. One walking who was very polite. 3 running as a group so engrossed in conversation and in their in little world that they wouldn't have cared if they ran over us. I trail run, too, so I notice how folks handle themselves with other hikers and walkers. Up your game, dudes!
Otherwise folks were friendly and it was a great day to be out hiking!
