Sealing along chimney flashing


Hi all, I'm doing some per-winter caulking and have a question about this flashing. Should the existing caulk extend all the way to the shingles? What about between the gutter and chimney? Also, should i put a vertical line of caulk along the fascia cover next to the chimney? I'm trying to seal mice out but don't want to block any water drainage paths.

Don't caulk the bottom of the flashing to the shingles. It shouldn't cause a problem to caulk the other items you mentioned.
