Lost and Found
Lost and Found: yellow hydro flask on Gale River Trail 
Comments: The X country ski path and Gale River had a lot of foot traffic. Gale River Trail has many bare patches and little snow cover until roughly 3 miles and that's where the tracks we'd been following ended, and it was shortly after that we put snowshoes on. The snow consistency after the rain was compacted granular. Up to S Twin was fun as always, with a light breeze. Light snow fell as we left South and we followed nice snowshoe tracks from South to North. Up until North Twin Peak was a bit of a challenge but it was here the real fun started. Leaving North Twin there are deep post holes and uneven trenches that not even 4 people in snowshoes could fix. Great day to be outside with excellent company Elizabeth, Al, and Joyce. Really excited for Elizabeth closing in on her Grid!!
