Comments: Started out at 6:30am up the Gale River trail and did not see anybody until the Hut and then not again until I ran into Becca Monroe on the way back from N Twin. After that the trails were quite busy. The trails were in great shape with the only snow in the col between the Twins. The rain held off all day. Made pretty good time and was back at the Garfield Trail parking just after 3pm. Great day to be out! Thanks to John and Lori for the ride and the beer.
