Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few blowdowns here and there but nothing major. The section between Liberty Spring Tr and Little Haystack has been cleared nicely. We saw a couple Forrest Service members on Mt Truman educating people to stay off the alpine vegetation. The rocks that were airlifted to the ridge were used to make more scree walls in hopes of consolidating the trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Flume Slide is not recommended for inexperienced trail dogs. This was Marlie's third time climbing it and I could barely keep up. Not much water along the ridge and OBP so plan accordingly. We saw several other dogs, all well mannered. One seemed to be overheating, laying in the water near Eagle Lakes then again in the shade with it's owner under the porch of Greenleaf Hut. 
Bugs: Some at the parking lot in the afternoon.

Comments: Decided to take advantage of a Friday off of work and visit the Frnconia Ridge before the throngs of people head there this weekend. Flume Slide was wet but nothing out of the ordinary if you know what to expect. Perfect day on the ridge. Temps in the mid 60s, abundant sunshine, and a light breeze. We took the Pemi Tr from Lonesome Lake Campground back to The Basin. Very nice walk along the west side of the Pemi.
