    Camped up there last weekend-- the mosquitos were not too bad, but I'm definitely bringing bug spray next time. Have fun!

    The Downieville area as a whole has been relatively light on skeeters this year it seems. Or at least within the last 2 weeks.

    The top of the climb between Butcher and 3rd Divide is usually rife with skeeters and the last 4 times I've stopped there (in 2 weeks) there have been ZERO skeeters. That makes me happy.

    Yep, we had a trip up there like that a few years ago. 100 deg, no wind, skeeters the size of hummingbirds.
