Comments
Comments: 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.
