Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Water crossings, mostly low on Liberty Springs, were easy crossing. Some minor water on trail near campsite. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails are in great shape. Only blow downs were on the Basin-Liberty Spring bushwhack trail, but as a non-maintained trail it was great. Several downed trees that were easy to step over. And the trail cuts off some mileage at the bottom. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Coop had a great time. Lots of locations for doggos to grab a drink at the lower Liberty Spring trail water crossings, but not much except near the tent site. Make sure to bring water for your dogs. Saw only one other pup on the trails today. 
Bugs: N/A

Comments: Nice day to get an early start on the trails. Blue skies, cooler temps, great views. Only met 4 thru hikers, 3 north bound and one south bound and a couple of backpackers. Bumped into about 20 others out enjoying the day. Mostly had summits to ourselves.
