Comments
Comments: Nineteen Mile Brook Trail was generally wet and a little bit muddy. No snow or ice. Patchy snow and ice starting circa the water crossings on Carter Dome Trail, but generally doable without traction today. Consistent snow starting around Zeta Pass to Carter Dome - 1 to 2 inches deep. Some standing water on Carter-Moriah Trail near Mt. Hight. Somewhat significant blue ice coming off Mt. Hight northbound. Icy bogwalks on the way to South Carter, however snow stops less than halfway between Zeta and South Carter. A few blue and back ice patches near South Carter. Carried Microspikes, didn't use them, but came close to putting them on a few times. Nowhere near enough snow for snowshoes...yet.
