Comments
Comments: Gale River Trail is reasonably well-packed, but the Garfield Ridge Trail and Frost Trail aren't yet and the Twinway is barely consolidated and also prone to drifting.

I was super-thankful for the crew yesterday that packed out Gale River Trail and for the team of 4 (Jason, John, Rebecca, and Phil) who did most of the trail breaking up the Twins!
