Comments
Comments: WAY less snow here than in Twin Mtn and Jefferson! Only trace amounts on 19MB, though there was ice and frozen mud and running water. From Carter Dome up to Zeta Pass there was 1" or so. The ice bulges that form between the Forest Protection sign and Zeta Pass are forming. Can still get by without traction but that will be changing. From Zeta up to Mt. Hight there was 2-3". From Hight to Carter Dome there was quite a bit of drifting. No need for snowshoes yet on these trails (though more snow would only make them better). We barebooted all the way up and only put on spikes from junction of Carter Moriah/Carter Dome Tr. Left them on until after the water crossings. Views from Mt. Hight were fantastic and there was NO WIND! Great day to be out.
