Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Only substantial crossing was near the bottom of Edmunds Path. No problem rock-hopping this but that is obviously subject to change with predicted rain this week. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: No obstructions. Crews have done a great job on Crawford Path between Pierce and Eisenhower, putting in a number of bog bridges and adding some scree walls to keep folks on-trail.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a number of them.  
Bugs: Saw one.

Comments: Great day. Light mist in the morning gave way to clearing by the time I reached Ike. An undercast showed a lot of the peaks as "islands".

One general comment, applicable to this and other trails I have hiked over the last couple of months: There seems to be a lot of bypassing of wet areas and minor ledges/rocks on the trails. This is spreading out the trail in ways that are probably not good long-term. I don't have a solution but I am noticing this more and more.
