11/25/200/: midafternoon. Nice trail conditions. Just slightly damp.
Tree down on Sandpine, after bridges, leg going back to trail head parking. This is real close to the double track. It will make a good choke pint if it is cut right.
Turtle laying eggs on westernmost Rabit Ear. This was between 10 - 15' before the chokepoint tree on the downslope side of the trail. This turtle was making a nest right in the middle of the trail. Saw another egg layer on Roller Coaster, but this one was off trail by several feet.
