Comments
Comments: It was a tough day. Indeed, it was a day where many would have just pulled up stakes and gone home. Instead, I got a chance to see Carrigain and Passaconaway up close, And a whole bunch of other mountains. Wow!

I started out on Downes Brook trailhead. Water crossings were non-trivial. Most of the medium sized rocks were glazed with ice. It took several minutes to cross any given crossing. And that just ate up too much time. I gave up and went to Tripyramid via Pine Bend Brook trail. And that made the difference. Everything was walkable. Nothing felt like "oh wow, I'm going to die."

Photos and a more detailed trip report are on my website, as usual.
