Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: On the wide crossing on Carter Dome, the rocks are really slick. The water isn’t deep, but just be careful not to twist an ankle (as I almost did). 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few blowdowns on the lower portion of Nineteen Mile Brook that were easy to navigate. Aside from that and the usual mud, the trails are in great shape. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Lots of well-behaved doggies out today. 
Bugs
Bugs: Shockingly none until above about 4000 feet. But even then they were mostly tolerable.

Comments
Comments: Nineteen Mile Brook past Carter Dome, and the lower portion of Carter Dome itself, were very muddy and wet.

We prefer to do this loop counter-clockwise (we prefer steep up, gradual down), but we were a distinct minority today.

Surprisingly not nearly as busy as we expected today. We only saw three people prior to the hut. There were some brief showers (just as we hit Hight, in fact), but otherwise it was a gorgeous day. Perfect temperatures the whole way (slightly chilly on Hight).
