Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: None, as the only two real cross points low on 19 Mile are bridged nicely. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Nice axe & saw work has taken out all the blowdowns. Saw one waterbar coming down from Zeta Pass that was partially undermined by runoff. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a couple. Notable was one atop S Carter, a mix of terrier & rottweiler, I was told. It got aggressive toward one of us at one point and was restrained by the owner. I think that's the first time I've seen that in a trail dog. 
Bugs: None; end of season, too cool and windy. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: A few yards before the 19-mile trailhead I found a pair of eyeglasses; frame and lenses were intact, one temple detached and close by, the other totally missing. I put the parts on the trail sign. 
Comments: Nice fall day for a hike, despite the calendar. Northern Presidentials were cloud capped early but became totally clear as the day went on. Saw quite a few groups up there. Ten hours and 13 miles makes for a very long day for us senior citizens.
