Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: No snow up to Imp Face. Lots of snow from there up to the ridge with depths ranging from 1 to 3 feet. The ridge between the Carters still has 3-4 feet of snow in places. Rocky areas such as summit of Mount Hight are clear of snow. Steep section of trail heading down to Carter Notch gets a lot of sun and is free of snow. Lots of snow heading from the hut up to Wildcat A (2-4 feet). From Wildcat A to D there is much less snow than the Carter-Moriah ridge. Perhaps 1-2 feet with many bare areas. Most of the snow was gone coming down from C but had 2-3 feet heading up to D. 1-2 feet of snow heading up Wildcat E. Most of the snow is gone coming down the Polecat Trail. Carried snowshoes but did not use them, but potentially could be very necessary on a hot day.
