Poland Lake - June 25-26
Took the Memaloose trail up to Poland Lake on the weekend. Some blowdown, as the Memaloose is known for, but everything manageable with less than 30 seconds to get around each and most was on first half of the trail. However, there is a section about a half hour from the lake which has been rerouted due to major windfall since the GPS topo I have has been updated, so we ended up bushwacking a bit on the way up, but the trail was fine on the way down. I put a bunch of flagging where the fork for the new part of trail takes off. Few small patches of snow on the trail and around the lake but the lake and meadows are clear and there are tons of fish jumping (we managed to catch a few). Campground is in good shape and it looks like they have added a new bear cache since the last trip report that I read (2012).
