Comments: All trails bone dry, with the exception of the waterfall that is on the Garfield Ridge Trail. Even so it's not really that bad right now.

Day 2. Another beautiful day, breeze for the most part kept bugs under control. Once again I missed the spur to West Peak. The North Twin trail was borderline maddening. Big balls on flyers you had to run thru in the scrubs, hundreds of them. Got to the rocks where you can get above the bushes, take a breath then do it again. Only spot of ice/snow was found but above the col. Really quick out & back then lunch on South. Really hot on South, black files were brutal. 1st time to Guyot Campsite since the Halloween storm (?) took down a bunch of trees. Impressive damage. Very quiet night here.
