Water Crossing Notes: Nothing crazy.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few MASSIVE blow downs on Garfield Ridge that required more than a dozen coins u set or step over. There’s a pretty decent herd path around a few of them. Lots of little blow downs here or there throughout.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a few; all happy. Plenty of water except on the Twinway up to South Twin from Galehead Hut.  
Bugs: Bathe in deet for the lower elevations, it’s black fly season for sure. Higher up the breeze kept them away.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a bed roll in a red “Peak” bag hung off a branch on Garfield Ridge. Deposited at the Galehead Hut lost and found.  
Comments: Went up Garfield Friday then over to Galehead Hut for the night. Up south twin and Galehead in the AM Saturday the. Back down to the road and back to the truck. Nothing of real significance e other than the 3 or 4 big blowdowns on Garfield Ridge. Our 8 year old is s up to 11 4000 footers with this one!
