Comments: Did this one with Monica and the Random Group of Hikers. The rock slabs up to Moriah were a bit slick this morning because of the morning condensation and the rock scramble up to North Carter was slick because the light rain had started then. Both were easily navigated with care. Saw our friend Franco along the way (I promptly slipped and fell right in front of him and his friend). Was surprised to see so many people out on the trails today given the forecast. There are sections of the Carter Moriah Trail near the northern trail up to Hight were the trail was full of water. As expected, the bog bridges were quite slick and some seemed to be in need of repair/replacement.
