Looking down the Dicey Mill Trail as snow starts to fall
Route: Dicey Mill Trail, (Mt. Passaconaway), Dicey Mill Trail
With heavy rains expected later in the day, I decided to get in an early hike to Mt. Passaconaway.
I was fortunate to get up to just about the Rollins Trail junction prior to the rain moving in. Reaching the summit (no views today), I noticed some rime on the trees. Just as I turned around to start descending, snow mixed in with the rain - this continued to about the Rollins Trail junction, at which point I dropped back into the rain.
From there, it was a long, head-down walk back to the parking lot in cold, near-winter rain.
