Comments
Comments: what a fine day..parked at 19 mile brook and roadwalked to Camp Dodge where we took the evident tho brushy cut-off there. Imp trail dry and smooth sailing..North Carter the same with a few brushy spots and some trailwork evident. Carter Moriah the driest I have ever seen it with smooth sailing to the notch. Ascent to wildcat A in good shape with very brushy spots after the first turn. Ridge trail very tight and brushy in spots especially around C peak.

Polecat dry and easy going with wildflowers galore but disappointed not to find any strawberries. Patty and Quince joined us to the ridge then a good day out with Bryan. First time I have done this traverse..Pretty good going without the mud...
