Comments
Comments: Trails were wet and muddy in many spots with at least one short detour around a muddy spot between Carter Dome and Mt Hight. Minor ice on rocks in steep section between Mt Hight and Zeta Pass.

Stiff winds at Carter Notch and hard-to-keep-your-balance winds atop Mt Hight, but mostly sheltered in between, even on top of Carter Dome. The views atop Hight were spectacular, especially to the east (Mt. Washington, to the west, was in the clouds).
