Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails are in pretty good shape. There was one fresh blowdown (likely from yesterday’s storm) on the way up Morgan that had been partially cleared when we got to it, but it could use a little more work. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: We bypassed the ladders since the transition to the top one is tough for dogs and ours wanted nothing to do with it. We did do the boulder cave route, but none of the dogs up there today liked it. One flat out refused and turned around. I essentially carried ours through (and she’s fifty pounds). The third was also partly carried through. Really not recommended for dogs. 
Bugs: Saw two mosquitos. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: See note above about dogs. I definitely would take the bypasses if you are with a dog (or a small child). Not sure why we didn’t bypass the caves. Don’t know what we were thinking.

Otherwise, a great day to be out! Weather was perfect!
