Comments: Barebooted Pine Bend Brook until the ridge without postholing. Spikes across the Tripyramids and down the Kate Sleeper Express. Snowshoes across Kate Sleeper, Rollins, up/down Passaconaway and about 3/4 mile down Dicey's Mill Trail. Bareboots to Ferncroft, where a very good friend picked me up and gave me a ride back to my car! Yay, friend!!

A very light rain fell as I crossed the Tripyramids. Kate Sleeper Trail was both snowshoed and postholed, and the tracks didn't always stay on trail. I tried to follow the trail. Some bear tracks in here. As the snow softened up, snowshoes were the best option. Saw a couple of folks on Rollins having a hard time of it, postholing the crap out of the trail, they unfortunately not the only ones. Sigh...

On this dark, moody day I had the trails to myself until halfway across Rollins, and I was perfectly fine with that. Sun came out while descending Dicey's!!
