Comments
Comments: Long and Difficult day. Snow was very soft low and even with snowshoes we postholed quite a bit. Once on North Carter Trail snow was a bit more stable and the rain had turned to snow. At the Carter Moriah junction the temps must have dropped 20 degrees and the winds were howling and snow blowing. Route finding became a bit of an issue and I am sure our tracks will be mostly gone with the high winds. The side hills going up to Carter Dome are treacherous and all day branches were slapping us in the face as there is 5 to 6 feet of snow. No views but Iron MikeL completed his Carter Grid. Congrats
