Comments
Comments: We started up at 33 degrees with 1-2 inch of recent wet snow that was untouched. It was very windy. Used snowshoes car to car. There were a few exposed rocks here and there all the way up. When we reached the Carter-Moriah trail someone had come through towards North Carter without snowshoes and post holed the whole trail. There was some exposed rocks on the ledges. Temp was mid 40's on the summit. On the way back the snow was mashed potatoes and postholer went down the North Carter trail. Conditions changed dramatically on the way down, more water, more rocks, some mud the bottom 2 miles and the 2" of recent snow gone with ice underneath on the lower 2 miles. Very springlike. We made it down before the rain. Tomorrow should have more running water on the trail and ice.
