Comments: Beautiful hike of Mt Garfield to close September Grid. There were many standing around the Garfield Spring but it appeared to be just trickling. As I descended the trail water was pooling so water can be had.The bushwhack to West Peak was difficult. The summit canister could use a new ziplock bag if someone thinks of it. The notebook is 3/4 full.East Peak was much easier to locate -notebook is also 3/4 full. This peak has incredible views especially on lower ledges. The water was still on at Galehead Hut today but not sure how much longer.It looks like they were buttoning things up today. After descending Gale River Trail it was a quick roadwalk back to starting point.
