Comments
Comments: Sections of deep, wet mud along the KT. Some bog bridges are nearly submerged. Excellent scenery and color from the vegetation in the col between Middle Moriah and Shelburne Moriah. Nice stone steps really helped with the steep descent. Saw 3 hikers on the trail and 3 more ready to leave the shelter. The shelter was empty on my return.
