Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a paper map blowing in the wind and later ran into a guy looking for his map, he was pretty happy to get it back. I'm getting into the habit of bringing plastic bags to pack out the items that don't belong.  
Comments: There were several groups of 10th graders that totaled 50 coming from an overnight at the hut. Wet slick rock and mud on OBP, nothing major. At the start of the day it was steamy but once we reached 3500' there was a nice breeze. It was a bit hazy all day, could see Washington but not the towers on top. So glad that I had the chance to climb the whole ridge and the rain held out. This was my first time between Little Haystack and Liberty and this part of the ridge did not disappoint! The trail was mild, beautiful and way better than I could have imagined - I had envision more of a Garfield Ridge feel. We met up with hikers that were going down FST and I said 'Oh you like slides?' and they replied 'what is a slide?' I drove them back to LP. The Osseo was nice, with fun ladders and a very mild descent; the best way to end a great day hiking. Thanks to B.F. for the car spot and good company.
