Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All either bridged or easily rock hoppable. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There are a few blowdowns along Wildcat Ridge that could use attention. They look relatively fresh (last few months maybe?) and are a pain to get around (or under in one case). 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Only a couple out on the trail today surprisingly. Ours seemed to enjoy this particular one (Wildcat A and D were her 14/48 and 15/48 respectively). 
Bugs: Black flies came out later in the day. The promised wind never materialized except for the occasional gust so they were their usual annoying selves. The ski trail is probably loaded with ticks but we haven’t found one yet. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There’s a tree on the ski trail covered in … bras?? 
Comments: Great day for the Wildcats! Despite all the checked boxes above the majority of the time we were pretty dry. There is very little snow and ice left and I’m guessing it’ll be almost entirely gone by next weekend. No traction needed at all (which is good because I accidentally left my spikes at home). The few stretches of decaying monorail were solid and relatively short. There were one or two small patches of ice that can be avoided.
