Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found an article of clothing on the IMP TRAIL, a short ways below the North Carter/Imp Trail jct. Believe they came from Imp. It's blue and from EMS, I have it if it's yours! 
Comments: Not a whole lot to add to Rick's report but wanted to post for the lost and found. Still a good amount of snow on the Carters! Combination of spikes and snowshoes today. 19 Mile Trail had a light layer of snow over frozen icy base, Carter Dome Trail up to Zeta Pass was more loose powder but still quick moving in spikes. Summited South Carter in spikes then switched to snowshoes - a lot of drifts and new snow along the ridge. Snowshoes stayed on down North Carter Trai, and then Imp Trail was more hard packed and icy but choppy and uneven, kept the 'shoes on just because. Imp quickly becomes boney and bare mixed with icy sections, just barebooted here to save the souls of my good spikes. All in all still very much winter conditions and a great end to the true winter season!
