Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Rock hops. On the way to the south peak the first is very easy if you go downstream 15', second series of 3 easy but dog likely will get feet wet, third a bit tricky but upstream 50' or so it's easier. Some shimmied across a blowdown, but we went across a bit higher. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Some small branches across Mt. Tripyramid on way to south peak. I was a bit surprised to still see water running down the washout on Livermore, thinking it would be easy to divert that at a failed culvert to prevent spring damage. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Easy day for Pepper. He got one boost on the slide, but then made sure he got up all the tough spots before me. No significant icing although there were a couple of spots where the paws got wet; trails easy pawing and he was allowed a lot of freedom since we only saw one person.

Comments
Comments: We went up south slide and down Scaur. The trails are pretty easy going with only 1-2" of booted snow even up on the ridge. I barebooted all day, the one person we met doing the loop counterclockwise, was in some Yaktrax spikes. Almost no wind despite the forecast. I took longer to get up the south slide being careful; the usual tricky spots are no worse than usual. Pretty much the same for the Pine Bend tricky spots.


After having had great companions on our last couple of hikes, it took awhile before we got into the hike, but it is relatively close and easy, with a wonderful boogie down Scaur, perfect for a day when we got out of the house way too late to hike with others. What a lovely stroll out under a sunny sky in the open woods.
