Comments
Comments: It appears as though many of the trails have been re-routed since two years ago. Carter Notch Hut is open for day use now, but it was fairly quiet. It was a great day for a hike. Really nice views at the summit of Mt. Hight. Looking over to Mt. Washington and the Northern Presidentials, there is still plenty of snow above timberline and in some of the ravines.
