Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Even with all the rain from the past week, everything was easy to rock hop. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There is one tree on Willey Range Trail heading toward Mt. Willey from Mt. Field that looks like it's hanging on by a thread. It's a recent-ish break that's leaning across the trail, but it's high enough up that you don't need to duck under.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a few pups out having a great time 
Bugs: Nothing was biting. There were some annoying little bugs on Mt. Field, but they just flew around and sat on our packs. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There was one black/red dog bootie hanging from a tree just below the Avalon summit. We left it there in case the owner was in the area.  
Comments: As was to be expected, the trails were wet and muddy from the recent rains last week. Some of the slabs heading up towards Mt. Field from Mt. Avalon had water running down them. A few slips here and there from the wet rocks and roots.

A great day to be out on the trail, and lots of other folks thought the same!
