Bugs
Bugs: More bugs later in the morning on the return passed Black Pond but not too bad thanks to a little wind. I didn't use any DEET.

Comments
Comments: Nice morning for OH. I started just before 7AM while the temps were in the low 60s. Since the trails were dry I opted to go up and down Brutus as when conditions are right this is a quicker approach over the slide for me. I find when wet the slide is often a better way to ascend as the the steeper section of Brutus (above the drainage) can be very slick and greasy. Lots of people out enjoying their morning trips to the sleeping elephant. Most of who I spoke with did take the slide.

This trip gridded out Owl's Head for me!
