Comments: Spotted a car at Seven Dwarves (and left the envelope with $10) and then drove over to parking area at the gate on the Garfield side of Gale River road. Wore snowshoes door to door but they weren't necessary for the Gale River road walk and the first few miles of Garfield trail. Higher up there was a few inches of unconsolidated choppy snow on top and snowshoes were best choice and left trail in best condition. Garfield Ridge trail between Garfield and junction with Gale River trail had seen little traffic; there were some snowshoe tracks and someone who had postholed their way across it but it's barely broken. Snowshoes are a must here. We passed a solo hiker going the opposite way so between the 3 of us there is at least the beginning of a track. After junction with Gale River Trail it was a perfectly broken out trail all the way to summit of Galehead and up to South Twin. Got choppy and unconsolidated again from South to North Twin and down to the little river.
