One large tree down at the bottom of hill 3/4 of the way up. Great view of the Granby Valley below. Was thinking of going over the top down Needles but the trail hasn’t been cleared this year and appears to have a lot of trees down.

Counted about 10 bear turds on the trail, bringing some bells is probably a good idea.
