Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Brought some Fire Tower surveys up to restock the box at tower. Interesting comments on those brought down to say the least. Next project is to reattach chain to door on box. Walter O. has a "to do list" here but is currently tied up with flood damage in southern parks.

Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Hydration pack left on picnic table; not sure if removed later during hike. 
Comments: Wet trails. Spots on Fire Tower Tr. muddy where you usually don't find mud. Trails got beat up slightly by hard rains the last 3 weeks but no issues. Made my day to see a black bear near bottom of Ridge Tr.. Young bear and a "hello bear" sent it on its way.
