Comments
Comments: Beautiful day on Mt. Chocorua. Huge group from U. of Michigan at summit. They were there (on the summit) for most of the day.



Piper is clear of blowdowns to the summit. I also patrolled and brushed the West Side trail (which I've now also adopted). This isn't a popular trail but a good alternative in a storm.



Started work on drainages from the top down. More work to come. Trillium and hobblebush blooming.
