Parking/Access Road Notes: The lot was filling up at 0730. Several cars on the road upon return in the early afternoon. Most trail heads were very busy today, with the area around Crawford a real zoo.

Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The river crossing is an easy hop 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The muddy section on the old ranger road after the trail leaves the river is messy right now. This part could use some thoughtful improvement. Other than that a few step over blowdowns and the rest is fine. Met a 15 strong trail crew heading up for 5 days of trail maintenance. They are from a youth camp and looked eager to have at it.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Several dogs today. Notably, one who was muzzled, didn't mind its owner, barked, and lunged at passerby.  
Bugs
Bugs: Not in the morning, but they were active and hungry on the way down. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: A half full (empty?) nalgene on the section of bog bridges.  
 
Comments
Comments: Great day to be out there. Higher peaks were in and out of clouds but still outstanding views over the Pemi, over to Franconia, the Hanncocks and Osceola. I could see going through Twin Mountain on the way out the Presi range had cleared. The trail was busy in the afternoon. Makes 24 since the snow left with the goal of getting once around before it comes back.
