Comments: glorious day for the Carters..as reported dry trail with a little mud to 3500 or so. we barebooted to just below Zeta pass where we put on spikes for a pretty good ice bulge there. Left the spikes on til headed down Imp. at no point today..well maybe for 10 feet or so..were snowshoes needed today as things were pretty solid. that may change for tomorrow in warmer temps. Rail, tho narrow in places was not tall and there were paths to the side. Most snow by far in the typically drifted areas headed up to Carter Dome where 4-6 foot snow pack remains. Nice views all around today. Quite a mix of conditions with bone dry trail and low brooks down below and decent snow above. Warm to hot breeze on the ridge and headed out down Imp into the sun was quite warm in the hardwoods. Excellent day out with Valerie and Ali
