Comments: Great day on the trails. Wore microspikes the entire time. Weather seemed to get the best of the trails, but the freeze over night made microspikes the best option. Gale River Trail, Garfield Ridge Trail To Galehead Hut, and South Twin Trail were packed down nicely, with a acouple postholes. I will be honest and I added 4 postholes I am sorry in advance. Frost Trail was had some ice towards the summit.
