Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All trails in pretty good condition. I noticed recently cleared water bars, and cleared blowdowns. There had been very extensive blowdown damage on the lower part of the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail along the river that has been cleared. A very good and thorough clearing job has been done. The trail crew deserves a great deal of credit and thanks.

Bugs: Saw a couple of mosquitoes, but had no problem with them.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found an eyeglass lanyard on the Ammonoosuc. Email me if its yours.  
Comments: Guitar Steve and I made the loop via Edmands Path/Eisenhower Loop over Eisenhower, Crawford Path/Monroe Loop over Monroe and came down the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail. Then we roadwalked about 2.5 back to the car. Maybe 11.4 round trip, about 8 hours. Weather could not have been more perfect. Visibility was excellent. We could see Camel's Hump and Mansfield in VT from Eisenhower and Monroe, more than 75 miles away.
