Comments
Comments: Overcast day up on Garfield, but managed to snag a limited, but lovely view. Trail is in good shape as you get higher up. Not much snow at first, then some icy patches, then the snow starts. Spikes the whole way up. Only changed to snowshoes when the snow got so sticky on the way down that it pulled my spikes off one at a time. Anyone's guess what is to come though.
