Comments
Comments: 19MB and Carter Dome trail were firm in the morning, so micro spikes worked well. The Carter Moriah trail portions in the sun started to get sticky by late morning. Most of our group of 4 took spikes off due to balling at Middle Carter and continued in bareboots. The quick spur from the junction to N. Carter summit was very choppy and soft. Snowshoes would help compact this section of trail. The North Carter trail was bareboot-able, with the trail conditions softening with the warm temps. Imp Trail had many more frozen postholes, and soft ice sections, so the micros went back on. The cut-off to Dodge Camp is clear and well-traveled.
The views of the northern Presis with the stunning clouds over and around them was fantastic today. Although we heard the wind, it was higher than we were. A great hike!
