Flora and Fauna:

Aspen has leafed out.  Some flowers have come out.  The area has just come out from under the snow.  Meadows are still too muddy to walk on. Many trees have fallen over the winter.

A few chipmunks.  Deer and bear tracks were seen. Several Chipping Sparrows.

Threats:

I picked up a bag of trash from the roads around the area, from several "snow parties" over the winter.

Off-road vehicle ese still evident from last year in the usual places (the two illegal roads going down into Little Shasta Meadow).
