Bugs
Bugs: Greeted by mosquitoes while booting up in the parking lot. Slathered on the bug dope and kept moving only stopping once about 1/2 way up Brutus. Cooler temperatures and steady breeze from there on so I could go at a more leisurely pace. Didn’t experience black flies or deer flies.

Comments
Comments: Yep, Brutus is steep but so is the slide. I managed to descend Brutus AND remain upright with very little slipping even with the slick ground. Just had to be wicked careful.
Why can’t all BWs be as pleasant as the Black Pond BW???
