On Saturday there were 4 trees down on the trail above SF Meadows heading towards DLS. All were easy to get around so they pose no real problems at all. One is even kinda cool in appearance and makes a nice ornament.
Anyway, at about 2.5 mile from Poopout Hill there is a skinny (maybe 10″ diameter” tree lying across the trail on another log. It can be stepped over easily enough. It was unremarkable and I did not take a picture. From about 3.25 miles to just over 3.5 miles there was a series of three down trees. See pics below.
And my favorite, which looks like some monstrous bug about to eat you as you come up the trail…
The first one is actually only a couple of large branches that were just a little too heavy for one person to pick up and move alone. Two or three people can probably just lift them out of the way. In any case, beware of the monster trail bug!
