Blowdown obstructing PCT in Southern Oregon

We encountered significant blowdown that forced us to turn around during our day hike. The main area of concern is north of Howard Prairie Lake, near mile 1761.

We also turned around at a large blowdown at mile 1776 on Brown Mountain. There is a large log south of that that is also difficult to get past and needs to be crawled under or go around off trail.
