Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The crossing on the Red, very near the Blue intersection remains tricky. One option has a rope to hold onto, except key rocks were submerged; the other option is to walk across via a large fallen tree. We took the tree option, and it worked for all. Old Stage Road between Alton Mtn & the Red trail remains submerged near the short bridge, due to beaver work. Other water crossings were as expected for this time of year. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Nothing anywhere required a reroute. Mack-Anna has a couple of newly fallen trees since the last time I walked it. Perhaps there was a step-over om the Klem-Mack. Blueberry has a couple that merit clearing too. The Red Old Stage to Sunset has a step-over or two also. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: NA 
Bugs
Bugs: Friday night's cold windy driving rain kept the bugs away deep into Saturday. Then, a few ticks plus swarming, non-biting black flies at lower elevations.
