Ascent Trip ReportPart of the Flags On The 48 - http://www.flagsonthe48.org/ - crew for Mt. Moriah. It was also great to have Dick along for his first 4000'er since an injury sidelined him late last winter. Now it's time for him to catch up.
Not the best weather I've had for a hike. We took the Carter-Moriah Trail from Gorham. On a sunny day after a dry spell, this would be a really nice hike - nice trail, interesting terrain, decent views, an overall great trail. I especially loved the middle of the hike over the ledges and through beautiful woods. However, this does not suffer wet weather well and it's been really wet. We had lots of standing and running water on the trails, as well as large stretches of mud, and many slippery stretches of ledge to deal with. It made for a long hike up and even longer and tiring descent. I landed on butt several times on the way down including one comic slide down a slippery ledge where my backpack got hung up in a tree and I sat on the ledge suspended until I got myself free. We got to the top late but had the flag flying by 1 PM. We let the flag fly until 2'ish and packed up and headed down.
It was a real pleasure taking part in my second FOT48 and it was really great to see an old hiking buddy back on the trails.
