Comments
Comments: Hiking trails were mostly dry.

Sad to see how beat up some things are getting...an inconsiderate person ripped apart the crib holding the old forest service staircase at the top water crossing to attempt to put in stepping stones (gee, if you try to do end to end stones, the water level rises and makes it harder to cross)...lots of wipes scattered throughout (did not investigate to see if they were Clorox wipes or baby wipes, but nevertheless, they're not decomposing)...major trail creep from poorly equipped shoulder season hikers avoiding ice/snow and social distancing vegetation tramplers)...full dog poop bags left on the side of the trail.

Ski trail grass is already getting tall, but lots of nice wild flowers. Gravel access road probably the best way to go. Spotted three patches of snow still, one of which is still rather deep.

Decent afternoon weather and much nicer air than yesterday.
