Nineteen-Mile Brook Trail
We had a beautiful hike today. It was a little longer and a lot steeper then yesterday, but we stayed very close to the water almost the entire length of the hike.
Our destination was Carter Notch Hut which is located on Carter Lake. Actually, Carter Lake is two lakes and the trail passes between them. The larger lake was covered in yellow pond lilies; the smaller lake had none.
We stopped in the hut and were able to get a cup of coffee to go with our lunch. On our previous visit to the White Mountains, we hiked to several of the huts. I’ll dig out those photos and tell the story of the huts in a later posting. Carter Notch Hut, by the way, was expecting 40 guests for tonight, so we didn’t linger. The hut crew seemed to be eager to get started with dinner preparations.
I won’t bore you with a lot of words today, but will let the photos tell the story of our hike of Nineteen-Mile Brook Trail. Enjoy.
