Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Bog boy brought his new sharp saw blade and took out a few leaners and cleaned up some branches on some larger Christmas trees to make them easier to walk under or step over. There’s a pretty large one within the first .5 mile of the start of Nineteen Mile brook trail. We were surprised that nobody ahead of us had even attempted to clean it up. At least it’s now easier to step over. Hopefully somebody approved to use a chainsaw or axe can finish taking care of it.

Comments
Comments: Great day to hit up carter dome, temps in the 20s and winds light. Definitely needed some traction along side the brook, used the old microspikes to not ruin the newer ones, lots of exposed rock still. Up higher close to Zeta pass and above was beautiful hardpacked snow conditions with a few post holes off the sides of the trail. Praying for more snow to fill in the whole route. Ran into fellow aspiring gridiots on the route. :)
