Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few blowdowns on Carter Dome Trail - one looks like maybe it was recently trimmed so you can duck/step beside it, and another you had to step over (if I recall). There may have also been a couple either on Carter Dome Trail or 19 Mile Brook Trail after you decent from the Zeta Pass junction, but it was late in the day coming down so I'm a little forgetful as to where those were exactly.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: saw one good pup out having a great time!  
Bugs: not that bad when you were moving... pretty awful when you tried to sit for a break, especially on the summits. Finished the day off with a couple of bug bites.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Noticed a pair of aviator-style sunglasses on the trailhead kiosk at the end of the day. 
Comments: Did the short road walk from 19 Mile Brook Trailhead to the Camp Dodge cut-off. Trails were a little slippery with wet rocks and roots in places from the rain the night before. The sun was out shining today, so it did help to dry things off, but towards the end of the day, some areas were still wet. Otherwise, nothing major to report here... saw less than 10 people all day.

Shout out to Gorham House of Pizza for a great post-hike pie.
