Comments: Beautiful day to hike South/Middle Carters. There is very little snow left on 19MBT to the Carter Dome Trail intersection. At this point there is a mix of bare ground and degrading monorail. The crossings were a little high but definitely crossable with no issue. I was able to bareboot to about 3200 feet on a nicely packed, solid monorail. Snowshoes went on for the duration until returning to lower levels. A big Thanks to the crew that broke Carter Moriah out Sunday! The trail was well broken but had drifted in with the heavy winds. Approximately an eighth of a mile from S Carter I lost trail heading east by mistake... My tracks do loop back onto trail at a higher level. Winds were very high and some tracks had drifted over by the time I headed back. Micros got
a free ride today but made great wind chimes at upper levels.
