Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All easily crossed although I did manage to carelessly dunk a foot on the crossing on the old route on Gale River Tr.. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails nicely dry today. One blowdown on the relocated section of Gale River Tr. near the upper end. Old section of Gale River Tr. seeing quite a bit of traffic, in nice condition considering. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw quite a few out. Water opportunities up to Galehead Hut; but very limited once in the Twins area up high. 
Bugs: Got a few bites while stopping but not bad and used no repellant.

Comments: Nice day with views although a little warm in the direct sun. Hardly any wind. Trails as dry as I've seen them making for nice steps on the Twinway and Garfield Ridge Tr.. Lucky timing as I had summits to myself except on return over South Twin. North Twin Spur very busy. Curious what the hiker in the Dartmouth group had in her wrapped up box (hopefully she didn't have to carry it all 9 miles); but probably will continue wondering. Nice to run into Becca and meet some new friends on summits as well.
