Comments
Comments: Nineteen Mile Brook Trail was relatively dry with muck in the usual places. Similar on Carter Dome Trail. Carter Moriah Trail to the Dome was mostly dry, as was it over to Middle Carter.

North Carter Trail had slippery rock, running water, and mud. Imp Trail North was also quite messy in places.

Warm, hazy (possibly from the wildfire smoke), humid day. Visibility only a few miles on the summits.
