Comments
Comments: It was a fine day to be outside. Weather was warm, and so the snow from the previous week is almost completely gone at this point. Weekend warriors will enjoy very clear trails. Most of the bog bridge is in good repair, though I saw one section that's a bit mashed. Nothing, though, that will impede easy and safe travel.

Photos and a more detailed write-up are on my blog.
