|Lost and Found:
||Good day for Middle Carter. As expected trails were wet. Lots of running water on the upper part of Imp and on the North Carter Trails. There is an intermittent rotting monorail with some ice towards the top of North Carter and the Carter-Moriah trails. I used microspikes for parts of the snow sections. Everyone else was bare booting it. It was misting at the top. Some light rain on the way down but the trees blocked a lot of it. |
Saw a few wild flowers including red trillium. Most of the Hobblebush flowers have fallen off with the recent rain.
