Comments: AWESOME day with Jim T, Kwi Hui S, and Robie G - awesome views, bluebird skies, cccccold at times. Was a little windy on the Twins but warmed up a bit later for Galehead. About 1-2" fresh snow at elevation - so pretty - we started counting the days until Christmas forgetting that it April rather than December which is what it felt like!!! Saw some interesting things along the trail: tracks of the white rabbit ;), a small cave framed in ice teeth (Kwi Hui just barely fit inside) and a shirtless Jim. Missed the bootie dance on North Twin but made up for it on South Twin. Great footing down to Galehead Hut from S. Twin. We only saw 3 people all day... so weird for such good conditions!!!
