Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Bridged (1) or easy rock walks, despite two rain days earlier in the week. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Mostly in good shape. I moved one sufficiently light duck-under off to the side on the way up to S. Carter. There was one notable blowdown going from S.Carter toward M.Carter, with many branches, which was easier to climb over through those branches than to find a go-around. After crossing it, one of us used my foldup saw to limb it and move it totally off the trail.

Comments: Very nice day for doing the Carters. Encountered a few others out there doing them, too. At the end, there was a red tape that had been placed across the upper end of the cutoff to Camp Dodge, but it had been broken when we got there. There still are pandemic-related temporary signs by the camp itself aimed at keeping cutoff hiker traffic away. This was mid-week and well past summer, the camp was deserted, and the brief walk through was out in the open air, with a light breeze, conditions under which virus transmission is unheard of, so we went through.
