Lots of small sticks and branches down all over the place from the storm last night. Erosion is out of control. Some recent blowdown clean up above the Lake on the Lonesome Lake Trail.

Comments
Comments: Trails were wet with some minor mud here and there. Ledges were wet often with water running down them. More mud along the ridge. Windy at the top today but warm enough to hang for a while. Descent down Kinsman Ridge to the Lonesome Lake Trail was challenging in the wet conditions. The trails are in very rough shape with tons of unmitigated erosion. Some sections of trail are trenches 4-5 feet deep. Sad to see the trails being left to wash away.
