Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Some very VERY happy pups. Coming down near the trailhead I saw a large dog with sad eyes looking at me (who doesn't want to end a hike with a beautiful dog waiting for you?). The owner said the dog was so happy he couldn't get him back into the car. He was ready to go back up the trail. 
Bugs: Zero 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lost a bit of my dignity after a butt slide fail. 
Comments: A pretty spectacular day on the Ridge. Every condition that Spring offers were generally seen on the trail. The snow lost all integrity descending with the high temps. In a particular steep area I decided maybe a bit of a butt slide would be better. Bad answer- went slightly out of control with rocks and microspikes not allowing me to grab hold. But at least I have a very cool cut. It was great to see everyone on the trail was over-the-top happy to be outside.
