Comments
Comments: Trails were wet this morning after the previous evening's rain and lingering fog.


Very nice footing on the Percy Loop Trail up to the campsite, then mediocre to the col.


Ascended the unmarked (but very obvious after the initial fern meadow) herd path to South Percy first and waited out the fog while eating fresh wild low bush blueberries.


Slabs on the way up North Percy were wet, but were starting to dry out as the sun broke through. Plenty of ripe blueberries around this summit as well, though not quite peak yet. Found the abandoned old trail with relative ease (but had zero interest in attempting to follow it downhill, especially in wet conditions).
