Attempted to through hike the Wildcats, Carters, and Moriah; trail reports from previous weekend was snow above 2500feet, but packed and firm, with little post-holing; left snowshoes in the car; hiked Wildcat Ridge Tr to the snow line, then post-holed to WILDCAT D to WILDCAT to Carter Notch Hut; started late, about 4pm, but expected to arrive about 8pm, 9pm latest; arrived 11:30 and wound up waking the hut caretaker while breaking out my dinner; otherwise, it was a beautiful day and evening, clear and sunny and in the 50s in the valley; saw sunset from Wildcat D and summited my first peak in the dark—Wildcat; 5.1miles
