Duffy lake 6/19/22

Did a quick day trip to Duffy lake on Fathers day. First two miles of trail were mostly snow free, with small secctions of trail covered.

The last mile and a half was mostly under snow. After crossing the North santiam river on a log just upstream from trail crossing, the trail is almost completely covered in snow the rest of the way.

Some of the drifts near the lake were 4 ft deep, but quite a bit of the lake shore was melted out. There were a couple of campsites not covered in snow or blowdown-there was significant amounts of new blowdown around the lake this year. Also of note-no bugs.

The hot weather in the forcast this weekend should speed up the meltout, but its gonna be a couple weeks before its a snow free hike in.
