Photo of the Day:
I saw that the Wyeth trail recently reopened, so I figured I'd scamper up to North Lake and check out conditions on the Wyeth trail on the way. My overall impression was that the trail crews did an excellent job repairing it. Tread was great, and the the trail was well brushed out. It was foggy/drizzly all day so I was concerned that my pants would get soaked by walking through all the encroaching underbrush. That turned out to be a complete non-issue on the recently reopened portion of the Wyeth trail north of the Green Point Ridge junction, and there were only a couple spots between there and North Lake that were overgrown.
There was minimal fire impact on the lower stretches of trail, but as you climb it gets into some completely toasted portions in the middle. The undergrowth is coming back nicely (it's been five years, after all). The trail doesn't exit the burn zone until just before it hits the Green Point Ridge trail. Here are some pictures in order from bottom to top:
There was a low ceiling of fog at North Lake, making for a very tranquil lunch. No snow to speak of, although that might be different by now.
I only saw two other hikers all day, both singles, and both between the lake and the GP Ridge trail junction. Never saw a soul on the other 3800'.

Thanks for letting us all know this is open! Great TR and photos, too. I might have to wait until next spring until I can get up there with the forecast being what it is - but could get lucky.
