Comments
Comments: BSP opened the Hunt and Abol trails just before the Memorial Day week-end.

Zero snow on the trails. A few wet sections on the lower portion of the Abol trail and parts of the Baxter Peak Cut-Off trail but the rest is dry and in perfect condition. A superb day on the Tableland with a beautiful undercast.

Delighted to run into Gritty Coil and Little Brown Mushroom.
