Comments: 19 Mile Brook, Carter-Moriah Trail, Stony Brook Trail, (road walk back to Moriah parking lot)

Wore snowshoes the entire time! Our goal was to go from Carter Dome to Moriah, but we ended up bailing at Stony Brook as it was after 3p and we didn't want to walk out in the dark. All trails were broken and in good shape, with the exception of the section between North Carter and Stony Brook. We were following one bare-booter who looks like he had a miserable hike. The steep sections were mostly ice covered by loose powder. Woods sections were hobbit trails where we were ducking or pushing through branches with every step. Ascending Carter Dome from the pond was an experience! Stony Brook was in the best shape - broken out and packed down. We could have gotten away with spikes but didn't want to have to carry our snowshoes. There was some ice in the woods near Rt16, but nothing too bad.
