Comments: All kinds of conditions today. Trail was very wet leaving the parking lot so into the woods to get around. The rest to the Gale River Road was bare with a few wet spots you could avoid. Road was bare gravel. Early part of Gale River Trail was bare with some flowing water in spots. Around 2200 feet the snow was on the trail and switching to snowshoes helped. Center of monorail was well packed. Several inches of new wet stick snow covered the area. Made my way up Garfield Ridge to the hut and then on to Galehead. Started sleeting on Garfield Ridge and continued until I was back down Gale River Trail a bit. Note to self... never ever skip climbing Galehead on a Twins Galehead traverse in Winter, no matter how tired you are. It's a pain to go back just to bag Galehead...
