Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: They were a bit slippery but doable with care. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails are well maintained. There is nice recent work, a bridge and some waterbars. A few of the bars are beginning to collect sediments. Some brushing could be done, especially on the lower Carter Dome Trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Other than one black lab, the four-legged friends were a color-coordinated assemblage of friendly yellow labs and big white dogs. Kudos to Link on his first fifty mile day hike (wow) with his two-legged friend. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found and packed out: one cigarette butt, one half of a pop top, and one Zantac wrapper, all behind the log bench at the intersection of Carter Dome Trail and Carter-Moriah Trail. 
Comments: Based on a fluctuating weather forecast, this hike was Plan D. It was a good day to stay below treeline, with the wind, cold (relatively), clouds, and sprinkles. Views were good to the east, not so good to the west, but still impressive cloud views over that way.
