Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One large delimbed duck-under on lower Imp, with a few step-overs and duck-unders, and rather brushy between Imp Face and North Carter junction. North Carter also had a couple of step-over and duck-under blowdowns, plus continued conifer encroachment in the trail corridor. All other trails in good shape.

Comments: Had the first part of the day all to myself, enjoyed the great views from Imp Face, then pushed through damp evergreens up to the ridge. Met up with the group I was looking for on Middle Carter, and joined them for the rest of the day. In and out of the clouds on the ridge, but we had great views on Hight, where we took an extended break. Huge congratulations to Carter (6 years old!) and Jill for both finishing their 4000-footers on Carter Dome!
