Comments: Gale River trail is really mostly dry and in good shape, mild spots of mud and a couple wetter areas. Garfield Ridge and Frost trail were a bit more wet in spots but really not bad at all. Heading up South Twin were a couple very small spots of snow hanging on, not at all significant enough to affect the hike. Views from S. Twin were completely breathtaking, it was lightly hazy but really didnt take away from the view at all!
