Comments
Comments: Despite partly sunny afternoon weather, the trails were saturated. Lots of mud and running water, as well as some wet ledge. It'll take more than a few hours of dry weather before surface conditions improve.

Lots of ripe blueberries atop Piper (not necessarily in the most accessible places).

Nice afternoon weather with the humidity finally starting to break. Yesterday's smoke haze has mostly dissipated as well.
