Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Only rock hopping required. Rivers are surprisingly low, although this may change with upcoming rain. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: No trail maintenance issues. Any blowdowns were just small branches or logs that could be stepped over or ducked under. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Desolation trail is pretty rocky, but I passed by three dogs that all seemed to be doing fine with the footing. 
Bugs
Bugs: Plenty of mosquitos, but they'd usually only get to you if you stopped. Enough bug spray would keep them from biting. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found some trash at the top - not good.... 
 
Comments
Comments: Good hike overall - took about 8 hours, including breaks. The snow and ice are gone, with the exception of a few tiny tiny patches in the shade.

WARNING: At the top, there were two birds (I think white-breasted nuthatches) that were VERY VERY aggressive in trying to get my food. They were getting very close and when I would go to scare one away, the other would fly down to my backpack looking for food. I had gone into the little wooded alcove at the summit and one of them was trying to sneak up on me. Remember to keep your food safe! Feeding wildlife will only encourage them to harass people in the future!
