Comments
Comments: Ski trails continue to show the signs of idleness. The gravel/rock access road is being reclaimed by weeds, etc. in places. The prominent herd path up Grey Ghost is still well beaten in. Fantastic sea of lupine on the lower slopes.

The Appalachian Trail was mostly dry with a few mud pits between the peaks. Ledge and rock all fairly dry.

Fantastic weather with clear skies, temps in the 60s to 70s, and a steady breeze.
