Today was another hard wet day for PTD. Clouds, then rain, heavy rain, stop and then rain again. He traveled w/Snickers today.
Wildcat - peak D (3,990) over to Wildcat - peak A(4,422) then over Carter Notch and to the Carter Notch Hut(northern most hut in NH)(located between 2 small lakes). Here is where he and Snickers came upon Marianne. She was working at the hut. She had some nice hot tasty tomato soup and a variety of other foods that she offered up to Snickers and PTD. PTD said it was the best soup. They stayed to rest and dry a bit before continuing on.
Ponytail says he loved the Whites. They battered and bruised him but he wouldn't have missed it for the world. Says he got a wide spectrum of weather, humidity, warmth, sun, rain, t-storms and winds. Lots of the time it was slippery and wet.
