Lost and Found
Lost and Found: I seem to have lost a blue silicone collapsible dog bowl that was clipped my pack, somewhere from the Moriah summit to the Rattle River trail about a half mile below the Kenduskeag junction. It must have gotten snagged somewhere on a tree and popped off. If you find it, I would appreciate if you could pack it out and either keep it or dispose of it :) I also found a spray bottle that had fallen off a backpacker's pack. I packed it out and tossed in the recycling at home. 
Comments: First time up Shelburne-Moriah....only had limited views because the clouds hadn't totally lifted. Definitely will go back on a clearer day. Decided to tack on additional mileage and head up to Moriah, where the skies had cleared so actually got some views. We were hit a couple times by rain showers, the heaviest being on the way down from Moriah. This made things a little slippery on the way down. Beautiful hike that doesn't seem to get much traffic besides backpackers. Only crowds were on the Moriah summit.
