Comments
Comments: A really nice day with temps from 10 to 35 with plenty of sunshine and no wind at all on the summits. Some ice on the trail in the first mile of the Imp Trail with flow ice on much of the trail after that and I had to walk off trail at several spots due to the steep slope of the ice. There were coyote tracks on the North Carter Trail and the Carter-Moriah Trail all the way to Middle Carter where the tracks went off into the woods. The North Carter trail was mostly packed snow and ice. The Carter-Moriah Trail to North Carter was unpacked but to Middle Carter it was packed powder and a few areas of ice. Great views in all directions and best of all there was no wind on the ridge and summits. Saw 2 hikers heading up on the North Carter Trail when I was heading down. I wore microspikes trailhead to trailhead.
