Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lost my favorite green hat. Doubled back to find it on the Clark-Holt cut off and.......... some awesome person ( unless the forest pixies did ) put it eye level on a tree branch. Thank you who ever you are! 
Comments: Hiked in to the AMC high cabin via above mentioned trails for an over nighter. Most trails very wet and in in some spots a bit muddy. A few good sized and deep puddles but nothing really troublesome. No views at the summit as fog, drizzle and rain were the rule of the day. Going down the Clark trail in some spots was a bit dicey as the lichen and rain made the rock slippery. Some leaves are starting to turn. Lots of group campers at the AMC camp sites near Cardigan lodge.
