Ascent Trip Report

Went hiking w/Baxter & Nancy who is getting close to finishing her GRID ....She needed all 3 Carters so that what we did .
Got to TH on 2 AMC vans & another car were there but never saw anyne else on the trails .At the start we put on Microspikes till we hit Zeta Pass Jct. had a bite to eat dropped our packs & headed to Carter Dome.Boy is that trail we got closer to summit & temps rose that's when the post holing W/shoes started :-( tag it went back to our bags ate some more & off for South & Middle .As long as we were in the trees the trail was ok but if it was a place where the sun would it the hit trail postholing started.One section we saw a ton of post holes & thought it was a crazy hiker then realized it was a moose ...Poor guy
We tag South & Middle Caters & headed down Imp trail .When the snow stopped it stopped & the trail turned into mud ....Have I told you I don't like spring hiking.But I had a great time w/Nancy & Baxter & Congrats on 3 more peaks done on the Grid
