Comments: Great day in the mountains. Started out at 0 degrees and never really warmed up, though the wind was less than forecast. It was nice to have a friend on Galehead Mountain, sometimes life is hard and throws you lemons and friends remind you that you like lemonade. The trek up and down South Twin was a breeze, we were even able to tuck our jackets in our pants Urkel style and butt sled down South Twin! What a hoot. Snowshoes never left the car but had I carried them, I would have work them on Frost, up South twin and out to North. 4-5 inches of fresh powder up high! Gorgeous far reaching views that help you remember that life is really good. Gorgeous colors in the sky today. Too darn cold for pictures though. Fast trails, micro spikes the entire way. Nice to meet Denis and the couple on Garfield Ridge Trail. Happy Trails to all!
