Comments
Comments: Pine Bend Brook ( PBB ) starts out quite gentle with good footing. There were some showers overnight and the trail was damp. Entering the Sandwich Range Wilderness area is where PBB footing starts to get more challenging. The rock was wet on the talus climbs that are part and parcel of this trail. The root parts of the trail were damp as well which made footing a bit challenging. One needs to be careful where they are placing their feet.

The views from Middle Tripyramid are better than North. Partly cloudy all day with an occasional sprinkle but no real rain. Views of Tecumseh, Osceola and Waterville Valley were nice. The descent aka down, off of North Trypyramid has a few sit down butt slide ( without snow! ) occasions. Unless one is young with very good knees and one could leap down. A great day out. Eight hours of hiking and.........did not see a single soul on the trail(s). That has to be a record as it's summertime in the Whites of NH! When can you ever say that?
