Hey Dylan, I appreciate the vision that you had for submitting this FKT. The forest service is working to divert the trail. As a result the course is changed about ~2/3 miles after Daffodil Flats (CCW) for about a mile. I wanted to reach out and see if you were ok with the official course being changed following this in order to defer to the efforts of the Forest Service. I recently got the FKT of the 22-mile loop and have done both variations. My FKT followed the original loop, to avoid any controversy. 

If interested, please let me know what your thoughts are.
