Comments
Comments: kept wondering when it was going to get windy as we ditched northern presis today based on 35-50 wind..not much happening on Carter Range..a little gust here or there sat in the sun for 20minutes on Mount hight which was excellent Back in the car felt a bit better knowing winds above 5000 were in the 40's all day..doable but glad we decided to save these peaks for a better day..


Trails nicely packed out..we used spikes most of the way above 3000 feet and they were great. Gorgeous along the ridge with fine and far reaching views to Maine and the presidentials..excellent.Really n ice walking on packed snow gave way to the varied challanges of the heavily damaged 19 mile brook trail..passable..but changed forever. The brook beds in places are amazing..Thanks Val for a great day out
