Comments
Comments: Thanks to Bruce for the invite to hike with a nice group of 11. Blueberry ledge was partially broken out by a few people prior to us. Used a rope twice on BL trail to help people up in 2 tricky sections, was a big help. 8 of us continued on the unbroken Rollins trail (except for a moose). We saw 4 people descending from Passaconnaway at the DM / Rollins junction, trail well packed up to Passaconnaway. Also well packed down DM to parking lot, except for some drifts down low after the crossing. Cold day out.
