Comments: John and Pepper's and Snowflea's reports were very helpful from yesterday. We barefooted the Gale River Trail until the AT intersection. Used microspikes from there until half way up South Twin. Switched to snowshoes from there and left them on until about a half mile below the North Twin summit. Lots of snow up high! Used microspikes going down the North Twin Trail until after the Little River crossing, then barebooted the rest of the way. A pleasure to run into Al and then Jack along the way!
