||Wet Trail |

|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Trail in great shape. Somebody recently trimmed the spruce trees on the flat section near the top. Thank you to whoever you are -- your efforts are greatly appreciated.
Not only did that remove the branches from hitting your face, but it made that part of the trail smell wonderful! |
||only saw one all day. very well behaved. |
||mosquitoes mostly. I used repellent so they didn't really bother me. But a cloud formed if I stood still for more than 5 seconds. |
|Lost and Found:
||Nice day to be on the trail. Weather was very nice and I had time to get in a quick hike up Mt. Tecumseh from the trailhead on Tripoli road.|
Dirt section of Tripoli road is in pretty decent shape compared to other times I've been on it. Not many exposed rocks or washboard -- it's like an actual road.
Trail was wet (but not muddy) due to yesterdays rain and the morning fog/dew. Not a problem on the ascent, but conditions were slippery on the descent.
Combination of sunshine and early morning fog/dew provided some interesting visuals and I tried to capture some interesting pics. I post a couple shots at the link below.
