Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A couple of blowdowns on the Carter-Moriah trail between the 2 jcts. to Mt. Hight. I post-holed when by-passing one of them and measured 3 ft of snow. Some blowdowns on North Carter but they have been there for awhile and are not a problem. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Cinnilla navigated the crossings and the ice-floats with caution but had no difficulties anywhere. The mushy snow later in the day makes for tiring conditions. 
Bugs: A few flies were out. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: The mono-rail (where present) is quite stable but narrow.
There is significant ice-floats on the Imp trail - with water running over the ice in many places.
The choice of "foot-wear" is a bit of a challenge. I used snow-shoes between Zeta Pass and and the Imp-North Carter jct. Elsewhere I either bare-booted or used light traction.
