Comments: did not seem like a Bonds day so opted for this. Lower Carter Moriah a decent footbed with leaves..the ledges on this side were somewhat slick with a couple of herd paths into the woods. Floating bog bridges in places. Lots of running water and mud, breeze picked up as we approached summit..did not stay long. Quite windy headed south down the ridge but mostly sticky rock on this section interspersed with mud pits. Trail well brushed out so we avoided car wash. Snow and sleet for bit, more blowing fog and big drops of rain than anything. Stoney Brook trail was flowing water in many sections, good fitting in others. Mud unavoidable . we were just as glad to have parked in the upper cul de sac. Thanks valerie for a good day out
