|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Chopped and cut out blowdowns for maybe 3 hours, on the way back down. What remains is maybe 6 easy step overs. I chopped out that big one you had to kneel to get under, that's history. |
||Intermittent mosquitoes and eye flies. I had the bug hat on for about 1/2 hour at one point. |
|Lost and Found:
||Thanks to the gentleman at IME who diagnosed my problem with shoulder blisters. I adjusted the pack the way you showed me, got more of the weight onto my hips and eliminated the pack movement, and it worked. Allowed me to hike all day even though the blisters are still raw.|
Also thanks to the folks at Ragged Mountain who helped me replace my broken folding saw, and provided explanations and leads for getting either a 'cruiser' ax, or a Forest Service weight ax.
Hot freekin day for it, but Moriah views from the ledges were awesome!! Glad I packed a water filter, because I went thru 5 liters.
