|Lost and Found:
||Up Nineteen Mile Brook Trail, Carter-Moriah Trail (up and back to Carter Dome), down North Carter Trail to Imp Trail and through Joe Dodge camp.|
Someone ahead of us didn't have snow shoes on, and for the entire Carter-Moriah trail, postholed thigh deep at least thirty times. People think they have to be tough to hike. The real tough guys are the ones who are able to admit that today is not the day. That poor idiot could have really hurt himself, and utterly destroyed the trail for those of us who followed.
Although the trail up to Carter Dome is now a highway, the Carter-Moriah from Zeta pass to North Carter trailhead is not. Snow shoes are a necessity.
