Comments: No snow on any of the paths that I hiked today. Snow adjacent to Lowe's Path near Abigail Adams. Rocks in the alpine zone were dry today. Looked like there may be snow on the Great Gully Trail. I met one hiker who ascended the King Ravine Trail.
Lots of hikers out today. Chatted with Hiker Ed just below Mt Adams summit. Lots of wild flowers in bloom; painted trillium, hobblebush, clintonia, rose twisted stalk, diapensia, alpine azalea, and Lapland rosebay.
