Comments
Comments: This route is now well packed out with at least three snowshoers out and back to N. Twin and more out and back to Galehead. As of the afternoon, nobody had summited recently via N. Twin Tr and nobody had been along Garfield Ridge Tr. west of Gale River Tr.

I wore snowshoes round trip. Galehead was lightly tracked out. I broke trail in 4"-12" of powder with deeper drifts over the twins. Others have now been through.
