Comments
Comments: Well this was attempt number 2. 19mbt is a super packed highway all the way to the hut. I was pretty excited when I stepped onto the Carter Dome trail to see it packed out.. but that excitement was short lived. They turned around at first water crossing.05 in. From there Monty and I made a slow slog to Zeta pass where we called it a day. It ranged from 2 inches to waist deep at times. Then playing twister in the unpacked snow with the downed trees even made for more fun. The Carter Moriah trail has not seen any love in awhile. That is going to be one heck of a snow shoe party to get those. As for the Dome. You could see a faint old track. But who knows how much to break out! All this will change with this weekends weather and snow coming next week. What a season so far!!
