Comments
Comments: Snowshoes car-to-car (except for the road walk at the end). 19-Mile Brook Trail firmly packed- snowshoes or spikes fine. The other trails were nicely established snowshoe tracks, but softer, and with drifting in wind-exposed areas. No ice at all, including on the steep approaches to Wildcat A and Carter Dome from the hut. Snowshoes were perfect here; crampons not necessary (yet), and I don't think they would have been particularly helpful in the often-soft snow. The trail to Mt. Hight was broken out from both sides. I headed over there from Carter Dome, but got blown around for a short time on the summit while being unable to find the trail continuing north, so I aborted the mission, backtracked to the Carter Dome Trail, and continued to South and Middle Carter from there.
