Comments
Comments: After a night of sporadic showers listening to the loudest owl ive ever heard the sun came out revealing some great undercast as i hiked acrossed the Tripyramids. Trails are virtually snow free throughout with an occasional short stretch of monorail. Barebooted to near the summit of N Tripyramid as there are stretches of slippery white ice. S slide was clear as well as Kate Sleeper with occasional winter remnants. Heavy Moose activity on Kate Sleeper.Rollins was off and on micros for the pesky ice.Diceys Mill and beyond bareboots!!. i met no one on the trail today. Unfortunately the summit stick has been taken from Passaconaway. This has happened in the last month. Strangely the fly lure remains. Sad to see harmless fun messed with.
