Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Crossed Dennison Bog - wet ground mostly avoidable by walking on logging slash.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: PBR was overgrown beyond where we parked but not terrible. The border swath was in pretty good condition, aside from a very muddy stretch near the bog. Cleared hillside had lots of low brush that was tedious. Herd paths between White Cap and Kennebago Divide then down to PBR from the col were in great shape.

Comments
Comments: Bushwhacked through Dennison Bog, then up to White Cap by using logging slash and clearings to navigate and stay (mostly) out of the mud and water. Might be easier to hike Boundary separately from the other two.
