|Lost and Found:
||ammo in ok shape with some washouts and storm damage. as close as it gets to the river in spots i'm glad to see it faired so well. everything above treeline was dry and swell. nipped some leaners on lower caps ridge trail. the footbed below treeline looked good and generally undamaged.|
jefferson notch road had washouts along it's edge for much of the way to the boundary line trail which was in great shape and clearly doesn't see a lot of action. there is one big blowdown around the mid point of the trail that was too big for my saw.
the bridge at the ammo crossing on jewell trail survived fine, but there is a lot of damage and snags in the area that obscure the trail a bit on the road side. beautiful day above treeline. spent the day in a sleeveless and shorts and was totally comfortable. unseasonably warm for sure. great views all day and quiet trails once north of washington. awesome day to be out.
