Comments: Beautiful day for a Carter Moriah Traverse. My first time heading over to Mt Moriah this way.It was nice crossing paths and briefly chatting with a hiker I met on the Bonds last week not far from Middle Carter.Took a quick walk down to Imp Tensite for water refill. Spring is running slow but steady and was cool.It w I met approx 20 others enjoying this late June day.
