Hiked North and South Twin on August 3, 2014. These were peaks 488 and 489 towards completing “The Grid over 60”. Got to the Gale River Parking lot at the same time as Tim Lucia and his Golden Retriever Gryffin. We hiked together up to Galehead Hut. He was going to hike Galehead and then over to Garfield.
After taking a break at the hut, Tim went over to Galehead and I hiked the steep climb up to South Twin. The views were a little hazy but still good enough for a picture.
I didn’t linger long on South Twin as I wanted to beat the predicted afternoon showers and thunderstorms. I headed over to North Twin where I took a few pictures and ate a sandwich (PBJ).
After eating my sandwich I went back to South Twin and down to the hut where I took another short break and then headed back down the Garfield Ridge trail and the Gale River trail. At the junction there was a strange sight that I hadn’t noticed on the way up in the morning.
Only 87 left to go to finish “The Grid over 60”.
