Comments
Comments: Trails were wet to start this morning with some minor mud here and there but dried out once the sun came out. Greeley Ponds Trail is nicer to walk now that many of the rotted bog bridges have been replaced, more to be done. Mt Osceola Trail up to East was rugged and rough. I had only been this way one other time and that was in winter, hiding all the rough footing. Nice ridge walk over to Mt Osceola on mostly dry trail. Several others on the summit enjoying the views and being eaten alive by the black flies. Mud in the usual pits just off the summit heading down to Tripoli Road. The trail is getting wider and wider from everyone trying to avoid the angled slabs up high. Great day out with Kim and Scarlett.
