Comments
Comments: There was very little snow/ice on the Gale River and Frost Trails. There were some stretches of ice and deteriorating monorail as well as bare ground on Garfield Ridge, Twinway, and North Twin Spur. There was mud, standing water, and running water at various points on the hike with the most water at the lower section of the Gale River Trail and on the North Twin Spur.
Saw many hikers today including Crazy Larry, the Galehead Hut caretaker, and many hikers who overnighted at various sites (Guyot, 13 Falls, Liberty Springs).
