Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Day started out with snow flurries and gusty winds. Bushwhack from Camp Dodge was clear. Imp Trail had minor snow and ice, but we bare booted it. North Carter Trail was a little trickier so we put on Microspikes. By Carter-Moriah Trail, it started to look as though winter moved back in; trees had a good coating of snow. We avoided Mt Hight as another hiker told us the south side was a frozen Luge and he had fallen many times. At about 4700 the monorail became deep measured by feet. It was soft, but no postholing. Top of Carter Dome was nice, the winds died down to almost nothing. Winds picked back up down at hut. Walk out on 19 Mile Brook Trail was mostly wet with water running in trail. Irene damage is still visible.
