Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Dead, barkless tree trunk across Hi-Cannon Trail just above Dodge Cutoff, which took down smaller live birch branches with it. I used the foldup saw to remove the smaller stuff, so the trunk is now an easy step-over. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: None that I saw. 
Bugs: Put OFF on at the start. Either that worked very well or I just didn't encounter any bugs the whole day. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Up on Hi-Cannon, somewhere below the ladder, someone left an old green shirt hanging on a branch stub. I left it. 
Comments: Nice day for a hike, with lower humidity than earlier. Met several groups of kids coming down via that steep half mile piece of Kinsman Ridge Trail. Down at Lonesome Lake, I had lunch by the pond, watching a small group swimming in what had to be cold water. Brrrr. Between the groups at the pond and one just below the lake, I saw several babies, transported in backpacks, one maybe just a couple of months old. But young mothers likely are more sure-footed than I am at my age.
