Comments
Comments: First, thank you to the recent posts for these trails; they were spot on! The foot steps and paw prints from yesterday were still visible at Camp Dodge and on the Imp Trail; they had been covered with a new dusting of snow by the time I reached the ridge line. I put on micro spikes shortly after the junction with North Carter Trail; the snow flurries had covered the trail so much that it obscured icy spots. There was no wind along the ridge at all today. One snow cloud sat above it all day. Light snow flurries for most of the day. By 2pm, the sun came out on the trail. Met the only other two people I would meet today between Middle and South Carter. They were doing the same loop I was doing, but in the opposite direction. I benefitted from their fresh footsteps for the rest of the day. They pointed out where the icy spots were,... :) The out and back to Carter Dome was uneventful. We encountered the 'deepest' snow on that section and around Middle Carter. Less snow around South Carter. That said, deep means a couple of inches or so .Microspikes is all that is needed for now.
