Comments: 2 days on the trail with a sleepover at the Imp Campsite. Lots of sun and heat. Fantastic sunset view from the Imp Campsite lookout. Lots of conversations with hikers along the trail and at Imp during a group supper gathering and passing info of the trail along the way. Dropped pack on trail and climbed up rocks to Mt Moriah. Had a fantastic 360^ view. Well worth it. North side of North Carter Mountain seemed to have a rock climb that wasn't going to end. The views from North, Middle and South Carter weren't that great but there were all kinds on views along the way from different areas. Moose droppings on trail between South Carter and Zeta Pass and down on Carter Dome Trail towards 19 Mile Br Trail. Great 2 days.
