Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: It rained heavily Sat night and the water crossings on the A-Z and Avalon were a bit precarious. Difficult rock hoping but stepping through water unavoidable. One crossing consisted on a fallen tree and a stable log that looked as if had been put there for that purpose. Water was flowing strongly and very cold. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Most blow downs have been moved to the side. Of note, the Kendron Flume trail is in desperate need of a blaze when the trail turns on a switchback. The trail seems to continue on until it simply ends. Back tracking helped to find the correct trail and the blaze on the upside of the tree invisible from the ascent.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes:  
Bugs: vulture size deer flies out but not biting. I think they just wanted company. 
Lost and Found

Comments: The rain of Saturday night, Sunday and so far Monday may make the A-Z and Avalon water crossings very dangerous. Use caution.
