Comments
Comments: Dodge Camp cutoff was nicely packed snow. We were pleasantly surprised. North Carter was packed as well, some drifting and softer snow just below Carter Moriah. Carter Moriah was a lot softer with wind blown snowing throughout. Got to Zeta Pass and Carter Dome/Carter Moriah were firmer, a nice treat for the legs. Then at about 0.75 below, the Bareboot Brigade started to post hole to the summit of Dome. Some crotch deep holes. Took to patching the mess for return trip. Had a devine intervention with the Brigade of 5 at the summit. After a few minutes, the Brigade started to head down. Quite simply, I put down new tracks on the patched mess. Guessing the Brigade left a minefield. Over a few years, have come to believe that hiking should be fun. Hard to comprehend how that kind of hiking and post holing is fun, even with company?
