Ascent Trip Report

Started around 9:15 after driving up from Boston. There was a little bit of snow at the start, but more as we went up.

Me on the way up

Not much to Nineteenmile and carter dome trail. Some very nice views from the ridge. The weather was perfect, sunny, but cool.

The Presidentials from the ridge

We took the Carter-Moriah Trail up to North Carter and then backtracked back to the North Carter Trail and took the Imp Face Trail back down. The Imp Face is a great outlook and has a great view of the northern presi's.

The hike down was not bad, ended up getting a ride back to the car from a guy we met on the ridge and his dog.

Great hike with some great views, and perfect weather.
