Lost and Found
Lost and Found: My remaining sanity 
Comments: Brutally hot, humid, buggy, and wicked hazy conditions yesterday resulted in seeing very few people. Wildcats are mostly dry with a few mud/snow patches on the ridge. Patchy monorail begins at 4200', sporadic up to the summit. Spikes went on for the section from the summit to the top Carter-Moriah/Carter Dome jct as there is deep narrow snow left here. The ridge over to South Carter has minor patches, than from South over to North there is a lotta patchy monorail and deep boggy mud but spikes stayed in the pack. Moriah is mostly dry with minor patchy mud
