Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First two bridged, next one was a rock hop. With water levels as they are now, I had no problems; circumstances may be more challenging with high water. Remaining crossings are little streams. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There are several blowdowns the first 10-20 minutes of Stony Brook. This area was hit hard by last fall's storm. Good signage at the kiosk. Good signage where the trail meets with the Carter-Moriah trail as well. Some bog bridges need replacing. No blowdowns on CM, recent work was done (you can practically smell the wood chips). Thanks for your work. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: 1. Someone posted a sign on the first bridge asking people to pack out their dog waste. 2. We saw one shy young dog. 3. No water at higher elevation, plan accordingly.4. watch those ledges! 
Bugs
Bugs: Lots of black flies along Stony Brook, too windy and cold on Carter-Moriah. Used spray and a bug hat. Prema picked up a tick near the trail junction.

Comments
Comments: For the nth time I've gotten cheated out of the Alpine Garden (too windy this time). We ended up doing this, since it was nearby and we liked Moriah when we did it from Bangor Road. We did get to see some nice flowers throughout this hike, including ones that were past season (a few white violets). The Carter-Moriah trail was my favorite part of the hike. Very many views all over, looking down into the Wild River Wilderness was stunning. This part of the hike was cold and windy, so we did not spend a lot of time on the summit. The spur to the summit from this approach is a short scramble. Enjoyable ridge walk.
