Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lost my hat on blueberry ledge and found my thrills on blueberry hills ---;) *** hat has been found YAY !!! 
Comments: Beautiful sunrise in parking lot where I saw Hiker Ed working on his over 75 grid --Amazing!!Blueberry Ledge trail was frozen solid at 730am,the trail was a frozen post hole mess. I used hillsounds to navigate the post holes and got some great traction up the butt sliding trail that was done on the steeps, the trail seemed to venture off the exact track a bit . The ledges were icy and forzen but enough snow pack to get purchase where it was needed.Rollins had a fresh coat of snow and I used snow shoes across, some post holes but fewer. The track is set very close to the no fall zones on the bowl but passable with care. Up to Passaconaway was a great snowshoe track but slick descending with again butt sliding, traction on snow shoes was sufficient to descend .Dicey was in great shape, monorail starting at the last mile with soft slushy snow ! WELCOME Spring !! All in all a perfect sunny day to end winter !!
