Lots of blowdowns on Twinway north of Guyot (we cut out a few of the herd path causing ones). Blowdowns on North Twin Spur and North Twin Trail. Unmitigated erosion throughout, particularly on the steeps off North Twin.

Comments
Comments: Very dry conditions. Lincoln Woods and Bondcliff Trails were extremely dry (with the exception of a portion of the Bondcliff Trail below the first crossing where the stream is still jumping the bank and currently flowing down part of the trail, even at low water). West Bond Spur, Twinway, and North Twin Spur were also dry. A few minor patches of mud on the North Twin Trail. Twinway was vexing in places north of South Guyot/Guyot due to many blowdowns.

Beautiful weather, particularly appreciated with the humidity finally breaking. Nice breeze kept the bugs at bay and kept conditions cool at elevation.
