||Beaver Brook XC ski trail, Gale River Road, Gale River Trail, Garfield Ridge Trail, Frost Trail, Twinway|
|Date of Hike:
||Monday, January 24, 2022|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Beaver Brook picnic area is sort of plowed; there were at least 2â€ new snow overnight, and that plus not being fully plowed after last Mondayâ€™s shenanigans meant that I used speed to my advantage to get where I needed to go. ;) |
||Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow - Unpacked Powder |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Snow bridged, yay! |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Nothing concerning! |
|Lost and Found:
||I saw absolutely no one today! There were 2-3â€ new snow overnight; I wore snowshoes the whole day and they were just perfect. You can see a few dozen really nasty bareboot postholes on the upper part of the Gale River Trail (watch your step!) but other than that itâ€™s starting to be a nice trench from consistent snowshoe-rs. Thank you! The steep part of the Twinway, between the hut and South Twin, was particularly easy to traverse due to prior snowshoers! |
Really terrific day above treeline - though it was below zero at the trailhead, there was absolutely no wind so the wind chill warning was not a concern.
