      A couple of tress are down across the trail. Still a little snow in sections. Runoff has created a little mud and water crossings.

      With the recent series of afternoon thunderstorms, this trail was incredibly fun and not dusty at all.

      Smooth and plush. No snow, no mud. Prosser Creek is running decently high so I would skip the crossing for a minute.
