Route: Starr King Trail

Trail was mostly dry with just a slight bit of avoidable mud.

Violets, bluebead, and a few types of small white flowers in bloom. Trillium are toast. Did see a couple of trout lily just before the summit of Waumbek.

Nice breeze helped make the somewhat warm temperatures manageable. Nice views from Starr King and just past the summit of Waumbek.
