Comments
Comments: A wonderful day for a hike - no wind and only saw two other people the whole day. Trails were hard packed and while there was drifting in a couple places, snowshoes would have been overkill, especially on the muddy/wet/boney sections coming down Carter Dome trail. So, the shoes took a ride on the pack the whole way. Someone tied a bow to a spruce on Carter Dome - it rode on my pack on the way down, along with the sled I found lying in the middle of the trail. I'm guessing it fell off a pack. Merry Christmas!
