Comments: There are still spots of ice on the Garfield Ridge and Frost Trails but they can be easily avoided. Other than that the trails are wet and muddy which is to be expected.

It only rained very lightly for short periods on descent - maybe 11:30 to 1:30 or so. The area summits were pretty well clouded in. I didn't see too many folks on the trail I even spent some time on the bank of the Gale River throwing my feet in and enjoying the peace on the way out.
