Comments
Comments: Some peak bagging today. A wet one with the rain on Saturday. Conditions kept improving as things dried during the day. 19 mile brook trail is a pretty moderate grade. Decent shape. Some washout. The hikes up to Wildcat A and Carter Dome were steep stuff. Didn’t like coming down Wildcat A given the wet rocks. Happy to not come down the path back from Cater Dome to the hut for the same reason. Up is steep but fine. Down is dicey. Nice on top after Carter Dome. Trail down was in decent shape only with some washout. Hardly saw anyone on it.

Plenty of people in the wildcats and carters for peaks today plus AT folks coming through. Mount Hight is a winner. We shared that with one other group up for the view only. Nice to see that kind of happiness vesus those that “must be there” on the other peaks - us included. From Cater Dome on was easily the best part of the hike
