    The trail was still intact and even had been brined past the detour signs about 5:45 pm. I went through as usual along with FFG.

    I have been commuting on the upper MVT for many years, and this is the worst I've seen of the water seepage, which makes sense given how relentlessly wet is has been. It won't take a drought to make...
