Comments
Comments: No snow or ice at the bottom. Quite a bit of ice on the ledges up to Whiteface. Lots of ice flows on the Rollins Trail. More ice flows up to the top of Passaconaway. Lower half of Diceys Mill was clear of ice and snow. Beautiful December day. Warm (for December), no wind, and blue skies. Great hike with Sabrina and all the trail dogs: Pemi, Terra, and Madison.
