M & S Carter, White Mountain 48-4K Series

A spectacular clear day in the Whites. We (myself, Charlene, Ed, Michael, and Paul) met up with Kathy H. from the Connecticut section at the Imp trailhead. We then did a car spot at the bottom of the Nineteen Mile Brook Trail which eliminated 1.6 miles of senseless road walk along RT.16. The views were great at the lookout ledges, as the summits of both middle and south are not very exposed. We did a side trip to North Carter, an unofficial 4000 footer. Great views on that ledge made for a good stop to relax and enjoy lunch. The trails were rather muddy along the Carter-Moriah trail which is the AT. We ran into some through hikers and a familiar face from our past Tripyramid trip. We were down by 5:30 which was perfect for Kathy who was staying at Pinkham Notch and had a 6:00 dinner reservation.

What a Great day.
