Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Loads and loads of fresh cut wood. Incredible job of clearing the trail on the switchbacks and going up to Middle Carter was a breeze! 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: 1 quiet pup and owner with a late start to the day. We had our usual 2 GWPs though - they loved it, stayed on leash all day with no issues.  
Bugs: With the lack of wind the bugs were troublesome from the second we reached Carter Dome to the moment we reached Camp Dodge - worse at elevation though. Our pups got bit in their bellies- like usual. More juicy flies than anything, black flies were abundant, saw a FEW mosquitoes.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a tan un-logo'ed hat on the trek down Imp trail and left it at the trail head 
Comments: Incredible day! 12.5mi, 4661' of elevation gain. Ciara and I both agreed that we were on our favorite trails in the White Mountains thus far, so quiet and the trails echoed remoteness while the rock and log steps & over all trail maintenance made the trails just a joy to be on. Possibly in preparation for this years' AT crew coming through? Absolutely fantastic day in the mountains, cant wait to be out here again! Good hiking!
