Sunshine all day, endless hardwoods, no ice on the trails, and crisp views from two slides - what more could I ask for on a day in early November? I had just been up the 1869 South Slide on Mount Tripyramid Trail to South Tripyramid in mid-October, but today was much sunnier and some hardwood bushwhacking beckoned en route to both the 2011 and 1869 South Slides. On a clear day this flank of Tripyramid has sun pretty much all day long.
Livermore Trail was sunlit and peaceful. Saw just two people, out for a stroll. It's a pleasant way to easily get out into the Waterville backcountry.
White Cascade on Slide Brook was flowing nicely. I think I'm close to gridding this spot out.
