Comments
Comments: Gray overcast gradually gave way to clearing of Carter summits, as well as summits of Presies by ~14:00. views terrific as always. Snow at Carter Dome clearing still deep enough to see 360 views over the trees, and the ridge leading to summit is a wonderful open view delight.
19M is crusty snow, good for micros. CDT and C-M trails are softer-we were good with micros on ascent earlier in the day, but with softening in the pm, snowshoes were the ticket on descent so as not to post hole even in the middle of the monorail. Trails to Hight are NOT broken, signs must be buried, nor are there any recent tracks, as we could not find either turn.
