Comments
Comments: This was a great day for this hike. Views from on the ridge were outstanding and the weather was perfect. Planned on going counterclockwise, but a large group was heading up 19MB while I was getting ready, so went the other way. This was a good choice as I saw no one until South Carter summit.And very few after this considering the number of cars. One NOBO slackpacker on the Dome, and a SOBO section biker. I expected to see more.
Anyone know where the Camp Dodge cutoff trail goes after it crosses S.Imp?
