Comments
Comments: A cloudy day, but the clouds were thin and high allowing good views of the Twins and the Bonds from Galehead Hut and from the lookout on the Frost Trail. There was a dusting of snow at the trailhead increasing to only one inch on the ridge. Footing was generally good and the few ice flows encountered were short and easy to negotiate. I never felt the need to put on the microspikes. Saw only three other people all day - a good socially distanced hike.
