Comments
Comments: Gorgeous day for hiking Mt Garfield. Warm temperatures, made the long miles and pit stops easy. The views were so rewarding after the long 6.2 miles up. Trail was well packed down. We snowshoe-ed up and microspike-ed down. Some post holes on the way down due to the warm temps. I imagine trail will be great for next few days, until next snow comes in.
