Default Late snow and trails...

I spoke to the ranger at CC Ranger District today. These late snows are playing havoc with trail openings. They don't expect Kingston Peak to open until the end of July unless we really get warm. Even upper Loch Lomond will be a while. They wanted to open them for 4th of July, but it's not looking good.

Barbour Fork will open June 14th or 15th. That's more for elk calving and not snow.

I'm guessing we'll have a smaller window for high country travel this year. We sure need the moisture though!

On another note, the Western Slope was looking pretty brown and dry on my way out to Moab, so everything should open early out that way. I feel a Western Colorado overnighter coming......
