Comments
Comments: Some (more) wetness in spots on FW and OBP due to the recent rains but no significant problems otherwise.

Lots of people out today perhaps trying to make up for yesterday's weather. I started @ 12:15 which let the morning clouds burn off and it worked to my benefit: lots of sun and not much wind but it never seemed too uncomfortable on the ridge. Falls on FWT were running hard and even the spring below Lafayette on GT was flowing pretty well. It really ended up being a very nice afternoon on the ridge.
