Comments
Comments: Windy, cold, severely clear glorious day. Bare booted to the summit. Snow shoes would be convenient for the last .2 miles. Some minor drifts up high. Did some remedial snowshoeing on the way down, so drifts should no longer be a factor. Garfield Ridge Trail appears to be not broken out towards Mt. Lafayette. Garfield Ridge Trail appears to be previously broken out towards Galehead, but showing a few inches of recent fluffy, untrodden snow.
