Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Took off my boots to cross Carrrigain Brook. I couldn’t find a good spot to rock hop with the high water. Rock hopping was possible on other brooks.

Bugs
Bugs: Bugs were starting to irritate me, so I gave them the OFF. First time I needed it this spring. They are coming!

Comments
Comments: Trail is dry w/ little mud up to 3,000 ft. Then, the trail has running water in a few spots.

Above 3,500 ft, there is unstable monorail with lots of ice that is quickly crumbling. I finally broke down and put on the micro spikes which helped immensely, but it was like trying to walk on a balance beam. The snow was not wide enough for snowshoes. I postholed a bunch on the way down as the temperature went up and the snow softened.
