Comments
Comments: I arrived the to 19 Mile Brook Parking Lot just before 6am, only about 4 other cars in the lot. I walked up the road about .4 miles to Dodge Road, and took the Imp trail from the Camp Dodge cutoff. It was really quiet on the trails from Imp Trail, North Carter Trail, Carter-Moriah Trail to Middle and South Carters, Carter Dome Trail to Carter Dome. I only saw about a dozen others total. I met up with my friend at the Carters, he had started at Moriah. The summits had been socked in, and then all of a sudden the sun came out! After Carter Dome it started to get busy. Carter-Moriah Trail to the hut, refilled our water, took in the beautiful Carter Notch, then continued on Wildcat Ridge Trail to Wildcat A, B, C and D. As we continued across the Wildcats the trail traffic stayed steady and busy, but not too crazy. We took the Polecat down. My friend ran down Polecat, did the 3 mile road run to the car at 19 Mile Brook, and drove back to the Wildcat Parking lot, just as I was coming down. I was hoping to finish with the run too, but not able to on the loose rock. Another great day in the Whites!!!
