Comments
Comments: nice day in the range. started off dry then started to rain in earnest from about gunstock until round pond. this made any ledge fairly slippery for a bit and the descent on the boulder trail (brt) from belknap a little tricky. smooth sailing after that with some sun and a nice breeze to dry things out. just a quick sprinkle early afternoon. some fallen leaves starting to collect on the trails in spots. some nice color starting to come out in the round pond area.
