||Gale River Road is a mix of bare ground and a thin layer of ice.|
First mile of Garfield trail is mostly bare ground. Snow cover begins at about 2,000 ft.
The trail was hard packed and fast today, but it appears there's a change in the weather coming through this week.
Saw about 15 others out today, lots of smiles. A cold start, but there was no wind at the summit. It was great to get some fresh air and some brilliant sun.
