Comments: Forgot it was Victoria Day in Canada. Met about 25 hikers, mostly Canadians, this beautiful Monday. Did the Twins-Firewarden Loop with the Bonds as an out-and-back. Carried spikes and wore then 3 times for about 10 minutes total, all on the Twinway on downhill sections. Ice on other trails was easy to get over/around. Shorts and T - perfect day!
