Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All were easily rock hopped today. Half of the second to last bridge on 19 Mile Brook is missing, but two well positioned planks make crossing the missing half easy at this point (though it might be trickier before the river completely freezes there). 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Some places with water running down the trail, worst on 19 Mile Brook Trail but some on Imp and North Carter Trails - looks to be a result of a combination of leaf clogged ditches and hurricane erosion. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Hannah had a good day - plenty of water and mud the entire day. We were prepared with extra water, but fortunately she never needed it. She especially enjoyed wading in the Carter lakes. 
Bugs: None - yay!

Comments: Great day for a hike in the Carters - winds never picked up as much as forecasted, but still a good breeze and warm temps on the ridge. Good sized crowds on Mt. Hight, Carter Dome and around Carter Notch Hut, but otherwise the trails weren't too crowded. Being a bit ahead of schedule allowed ample breaks at the lookout halfway down Carter Dome and around the lakes by the hut. All in all it was an excellent day!
