|Water Crossing Notes:

|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Blowdowns on Livermore (beyond ski trails), Pine Bend Brook, and Mt. Tripyramid Trails. Extreme unmitigated erosion and trail creep on Pine Bend Brook and Mt. Tripyramid Trail (particularly on either side of Middle). |
||Black flies were vexing on the south slide. |
|Lost and Found:
||Started just after the thunderstorms worked through early this afternoon. Livermore Trail was damp from the downpour, but not too muddy. Skipped North Slide because things were still damp. Scaur Ridge was damp, but not muddy.|
Pine Bend Brook was very greasy due to the unmitigated erosion; lots of trail creep, herd paths, etc. A few avoidable patches of snow.
The ridge was also damp with slippery ledge in the heavily eroded areas (such as descending off Middle). A few patches of snow that you'd have to go out of your way to touch.
Entrance to the south slide was tricky as usual due to the unmitigated erosion, but the slide itself was dry. The traverse back to Livermore was also generally dry with some minor mud in the usual places.
Nice variety of wildflowers, including lady slipper (purple and white), violet (purple and yellow), bluebead, starflower, bunchberry, strawberry, and trillium (at elevation). Air was much nicer following the storms as well. A little foggy to start, but nice blue sky by the second half of the hike.
