Carters & Moriah Overnight at Imp Shelter

Carter Moriah Trail

This weekend, the long awaited Carters + Moriah 4-bagger were on the menu after a 3 month summer backpacking hiatus which in hindsight is inexcusable.  Gus and I hit up Dolly Copp campsite at about 10 pm and got a fire going.  We drank a few brews, scoped the full moon from the field and split up group gear and passed out around 1 am.  I slept with the rain fly off and woke a few times to see the moon staring brightly down at me.

Day One: 2.74 Miles & 1516 feet vert

After a Kinsman Ridge Traverse trip fell apart last minute, Gus LT and I decided to try a Tom Field Wiley Loop out of a lack of a car spot.  I’m positive these peaks are rarely done as a loop which made it even more enticing; I’m starting to develop a habit of hiking weird loops.
