Looks like a good day. How'd the trail look? Was the signage still there?

The main shaft is along the way to the overlok to Gray's and Tory's, deff a pucker factor . It's cool following along the rail road grade on the mountain.

Carsonite is still in place and looks like it's doing the job. Also looks like the FS has been up ther with a dozer and blocked some of the user created trails along the powerline road.

Water is still overflowing the creek at the 2nd water crossing (on the powerline rd). The big rocks are getting bigger as the trail erodes. A bypass has been created right after the crossing, that goes around the main obstacle. The ground is wet and the bypass is getting torn up. I managed to get up on the rocks at that obstacle but couldn't get over. The downstream side is really eroded. Had to stack to get over and still dragged my passenger frame rail. Never had a problem b/4. Ric faired better but he put his passenger slider to good use.
