Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All rock hops or dry (I'm sure recent rains have changedthat) 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A couple of blow downs here or there; the only notable one is on Crawford Path on the south side of Eisenhower. Still an easy step over. A couple waterbars down low on Edmand's are pretty full of stuff. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Only saw a few. Be mindful of the talus above treeline(especially towards Monroe) being very ruff (get it?) on paws. Remember to put 'em on leash above treeline/in areas noted. 
Bugs: Nothing in the morning, cool temps. Black flies around up high later in the day, but moving and the breeze kept them mostly at bay. Mosquitoes for biblical on the way down Edmand's late in the day. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Unreal day to spend above treeline. Crossed Monroe and Eisenhower off for my son and I got a few redline segments filled in. Trails in great shape. Lakes of the Clouds Hut not open, but there is a spigot outside for water and looks like a caretaker there (didn't see them but windows were open and some educational signs posted). Views for days with almost perfect weather. Not as many people as expected given the weather, but it was Thursday. Several Presi-Traversers and a lot of day hikers. Did see one group backpacking who said they were planning to camp at Lakes. Is camping allowed outside the huts if they aren't open anyone know? Be aware of a yellow jacket nest INSIDE THE CAIRN on top of Eisenhower. On Edmand's near the top, some of the rock faces/ledgey spots were slick with run off and moss.
