Comments: Most of the surfaces were dry which made for secure footing on the ledges and rocks. Some running water on the North Carter Trail but it causes no problem. Lots of up and downs on the ridges. Three groups of northbound hikers on Wildcat Ridge coming out of Wildcat Col all wanted to know how much further to the notch. Although the Wildcat Ridge Trail is well maintained it is still a rough hike so be prepared. Equipment by the ski lift where the old summit building stood. Yellow water lilies in Carter Lake. The best views were from Mt Hight and there was almost no wind today on the open summit. Many AT hikers as well as New Englanders on the trails today.
