Comments
Comments: blueberry ledge trail free of snow to start. some soft snow as we climbed. the ledges were mostly free of snow and were not slippery. more snow as we climbed. needed snowshoes for the sleeper trail since it was not packed out. we were on and off the trail until close to the junction with the spur to the summit of e sleeper. bushwacked around a lot of the blowdowns. no evidence of anyone on the trail from e sleeper over to the tripyramids. kept the snowshoes on until well down on dicey's mill. some large ice flows on the trail but they were soft and easily avoided. thanks to wayne for a great day.
