Comments
Comments: This was just a perfect day to be in the Whites. The weather, the snow, the views - all just perfect! Nineteen mile brook trail is handpicked all the way to the Carter Dome Trail. At that junction, it does start to get a little softer up CDT, but manageable in snowshoes. Barebooting would be an awfully stupid idea at this point. The trail gets less and less packed the closer you get to the peak until about 1/2 mile from the summit. Carter Moriah trail towards South and Middle is a little hard to follow as there's some circling and trail finding going on in that area but it wasn't too bad to notice which trails had the most traffic. The white blaze marks aren't that easy to see right now. North Carter Trail and Imp trail are highways - zero issues. And, we were able to see the faint remains of the bushwhack from IMP back over to NMBT. Three of us broken that out as much as three people can. Photos and story at link below.
