Minor Issues
Update
Mostly Dry, Fallen Trees - We hiked into to Laverty Lakes and spent three nights. The trails were generally in good shape, a few fallen logs, a bit of rapidly melting snow and a dicey but passage stream crossi g at Bowman Creek. Day hiked to Hobo Lake, which was iced upped and an entirely surrounded by snow, and Lookout Peak. Also day hiked to John Henry Lake, pathcy snow and no signs of any other people. Bugs weren't bad but the potential is there. My first time hiking the Eagle Cap wilderness and I am impressed, really quite stunning, I highly recommend it.
