Comments
Comments: First time using the Camp Dodge Cutoff, was very easy to find as I was told. Light dusting of snow at trailhead, which eventually became probably 4-6 inches up on the Carter-Moriah trail. Lots of icy spots going up, but all easily avoidable; it wasn't until we reached the Carter-Moriah trail that we decided to don the microspikes. Kept them on until about halfway down Carter Dome trail. Overall a very nice day, a bit windy in spots but comfortable and with excellent views of the Presidentials and to the North and West. Nineteen Mile Brook Trail was a bit tricky in spots due to ice. Only saw two other people throughout the day, and that wasn't until reaching Zeta Pass.
