Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Water crossings took a little thought but no wet feet or leaps of faith. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One substantial blowdown that was only partially limbed down on the east side of Shannon on the yellow trail; better limbing would help but taking it out would require some serious gear. One large, high blowdown on the blue trail between yellow and red in the Shannon-Goat Pasture col...this wouldn't be a problem except it's where the trail is very mucky and hikers need to combine rock-hopping with tree-ducking. Mess of smaller trees down on blue trail just a little south of Old Stage; there's a lot but they're all fairly small and should go with hand saw.

Bugs: Slapped a couple of skeeters but mostly good as long as kept moving. A slight breeze helped.
