I completed the BMT section thru BIG FROG WILDERNESS over the weekend. Jump off from the trailhead at 1030 and arrived up top at 1500. I took the Lick Log Ridge trail # 65 to BIG FROG MOUNTAIN and camped up there on Saturday night. The spring at the top had water and was flowing so that was a good thing as there are no water sources on #65 that I saw. #65 is a steady climb all the way but not too steep. I had great views all the way up with clear skies and the trees are bare now. I met a father /son also camping on top when I arrived. They shared their camp fire with me and we hung out and talked for a while.I set up my tent in another spot over from them and hit the sack about 2000 hrs...we were all pretty whipped. The temp was cold but calm when I laid down but later on the wind came up and howled all night but it seemed to warm up some. I broke camp at 0730 and was headed out by 0815. There were fresh signs/markers at the trail intersections that coincided with the hiker guide book and navigation was a snap. The creeks were full but I didn't have any troubles crossing them. I rolled into Thunder Rock CG at 1400. Trail conditions the whole way up and down were in good shape.
