Comments
Comments: Trail was initially dry then became pretty wet near the logging road crossing. Off and on mud and some larger pits. Between the logging road and the first ledges it was more mud than dry ground. Some nice views as always from the summit. I notice some hobble bush blooming along the Carriage road on my way down.
