Bugs: It was too cold for bugs when we left and all the way to the summit. Way to windy for bugs on the summit. It warmed considerable as we descended to about 60* but still no bugs. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: The trail was basically free of snow to the summit of Mt. Jim. Descending Jim on the North side, however, the snow was very deep but only for a few tenths of a mile to the junction with Beaver Brook. Beaver Brook had intermittent patches of snow but no traction needed. Benton to the tree line had minor patches of snow. Above the tree line there was no snow. Carriage road was basically free of snow except for a short stretch below Glen Cliff. I was told that traction is necessary on Beaver Brook below the intersection with Asquam.
