Ascent Trip Report

The way up to the summit was raining down the trail will many streams. It was like beautiful sound along the way up the various rocks scrambles. As we were going up we finally ran into some other people on the trail. One photography and another father/son coming down. They told me about a great view spot that was just past the summit spur path, when coming from the west loop, that had a great view of the pemi and presi's. So after tagging the summit we went down to enjoy the great view of Washington, masked in clouds, and have a brief lunch. After that we started to head down the Dicey's Mill trail. The trail was very pleasant and easy going, a great change from the way up along the blueberry ledge trail.

Fantastic day and great hike with my pup. She is now at 2/48 (Passa and Whiteface).
