Blueberry Ledge Trail, Rollins Trail, Dicey's Mill Trail.
11.9-mile loop with 3800 feet of elevation gain.
(My phone was not working this morning, so all photos were taken by Mom).
It was Mom's birthday today! She wanted to hike and we needed Whiteface and Passaconaway for the Grid, so we set out on a very rainy morning up Blueberry Ledge Trail. We had a change of clothes with us, so we let ourselves get wet and then just changed on the trail close to Whiteface's summit.
I am about to travel for Christmas vacation, so I will just post photos today. Even when we don't publish long posts, we still at least want to post photos so we have a record of our hikes. Alex and I will both get back to posting longer trip reports after the holidays.
One note, though. Rollins Trail was soft and we sunk to our knees often even though we were wearing snowshoes. It was a difficult trail today with the soft snow! Also, none of us got a clear photo of Passaconaway's summit. :(
Have a wonderful holiday, everyone! Don't forget to look at Alex's blog for other trip reports (we take turns posting).
