Comments
Comments: I know this trail was packed out 2 days before (THANKS!!!), but, the last half mile (almost a whiteout) up Carter Dome was building a cornice - packed way high - I've never seen it like that!!! There was no evidence of a trail or traffic there - I just followed the ridge. From Zeta Pass north, the ridge was OK, but, had drifted in spots - trail wasn't very obvious. The wind was FEROCIOUS!!!!
