Comments: Beautiful morning for Mt Hight and the Carters. I was able to wear micros until intersection of Carter Dome trail and Carter Moriah trail. Snow was mashed potatoes from the start but early on would still hold my weight. Ascending Mt Hight snowshoes were a must as there was only one set of tracks going up and there was the equivalent of two inches of crushed ice on the trail that had fallen off trees. Between Mt Hight and Carter Dome snowpack is high and branches are right at eye level. Trail leading to Middle and South Carter in great shape and appears to have seen more traffic since the last storm. Highly recommend snowshoes for this hike.
