Comments
Comments: Nice hike of these peaks. Garfield Ridge E Peak offers some fantastic views of Franconia Ridge and the Pemi Wilderness. Low winds and mild temps made for a great fall day. It was nice chatting with a familiar hiker on South Twin as well as a few others out today enjoying the weather. Leaves are just starting to change,some faster than others. Even though water crossings were low and no issue-I opted for herdpath off of N Twin trail
