Comments
Comments: Trail conditions are great. I used microspikes to top of North Twin. Switched to snowshoes over to South and then Galehead. Left them on back to car...too lazy to take them off. If one chooses to use the microspikes you will need to stay dead center of trail...you'll post hole on the sides. Snowshoes probably the better option. Thoroughly enjoyed hiking with JMarshall today..hope we get a chance to do it again sometime. And special thanks to individual that found my lost microspike and returned it to me at my car, where she also happened to have parked. You meet the nicest people on the trails!
