Comments
Comments: Other than the recently rebuilt lower Imp Trail, all trails were quite wet. Nineteen Mile Brook, Carter Moriah above the notch viewpoint to the Dome, and North Carter trails were all brooks. Standing water and mud pits on Carter-Moriah Trail, especially on the way to Hight and North Carter. Some ice falling off trees on North Carter, otherwise no ice observed. Foliage pretty good in the lower elevations. Higher elevations good too, but appear to be just past peak in this particular area.
