Tuesday NCT hike

Oh ya, on Tuesday morning, we headed south to Forest Service highway 16 and found the parking lot, then headed west on the North Country trail.  The road ditch was so weedy, we couldn't find the trail.
Ya, the ditch needs some whacking.
The parking area was nearly as bad.

We'd done this section before, at least to Bob Lake.
Its a very nice section.

Although we found may trees across the trail.

This is a nice trail, why doesn't it get brushed back?

We didn't note any work on it that might have been done this year.

Bob lake Spur sign looks rough from bear attacks.

It was HOT out today, so I cooled off in creeks along the way.

More than 2 dozen logs were across the trail between FS road 16
 and 1100 were we turned around.  No sawyers here?.

Whacking this back some would sure make it nicer.
Maybe we should come back and do it?  It wouldn't take very long

This is Sandy looking for a board walk to crosses this wet location.
We did find it the 2nd time we crossed it.

Water dogs do like a dip.

Snow pushed this tree down?

We crossed the tracks.
A blaze on the tie.

This is the parking lot on 1100.
If it was cleared, maybe people would use it?

This is as far west as we'll get today, so we headed back.
