Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The water was high and crossing required hiking waders. I confirmed that the log "bridge" that used to be upstream of the crossing has been washed away. Only 1 of the 2 trees are still there so there is no "hand rail" anymore.

Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a fleece near the summit of North Twin 
Comments: The primary purpose of this report is to let people know I found a fleece near the summit of North Twin. And also that I confirmed the "log bridge" that used to be upstream of the crossing is gone. Other info will be outdated after today's storm but as of Saturday the upper trails were in good condition with hard packed snow and little ice. Lower trails were a mix of no snow, ice, or patchy snow.
