Ascent Trip ReportLeft just after sunrise. Nice 9.8 mile snowshoe loop from Ferncroft, to Old Mast Road, to Square ledge, to Passaconaway Summit, back down Dicey Mill to Ferncroft. Started a fat grouse on Square Ledge trail ...sounded like a helicopter suddenly taking off just 3 feet from you...also saw a pine marked up with bear claws - very impressive. The Bowl was beautiful as was Whiteface. Excellent views of Tripyramids...makes me want to go back..
Headlamped out the last mile.
Joined by Bilbo and the Black Prince.
