Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: use the tree that is down across the water crossing on Dicey's Mill Trl, I tried to rock hop and with all the rain got stranded. But another hiker appeared out of no where and lent me a hand! 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: water, water everywhere! Boots were so wet I just walked right through it all. Whatever. I cleaned out a lot of waterbars along the way but it is just wet in the sag between Whiteface and sleepers. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: The dog had great time. Plenty of water to be had. Coming down Blueberry Ledge Trl was tricky with the water making things slippery for some but we had a lot of fun.

Comments
Comments: What a day for a duck! The forecast was good so I used a saved day to take off of work and go have some fun in Wonalancet. The clouds never lifted above 3000 ft plus or minus. The sun was shining in my heart though and it was all I needed to be out on the trail. Just me and the dog, so we were able to push ourselves. Did all four, 17 miles in 8 hours, 5000 feet of elevation gained. Good times.


Thank you to Judd who leap frogged with me through the first two and kept me inspired! We will see you again my friend.
