South Twin

Hiked on: July 7, 2001
(Danielle and Tim - Total Distance: 12 miles)

After Danielle and I bagged Mt. Galehead we decided to head up to South Twin. The trail from the Galehead hut was steep with lots of boulders, but we managed to make the summit in about an hour. Luckily the weather was great and we had fantastic views all around. So far the view from South Twin are my favorite of all the summits we've climbed.

While resting at the cabin and after hiking up to the Galehead summit many other hikers suggested going up South Twin to enjoy the view. I'm glad we took their advice.  The last time we were on South Twin was in the pouring rain and we couldn't see a thing!

From the summit of North Twin Danielle and I decided to bag South Twin. However, when we got there the sky opened up and we had to run back to treeline to escape the thunder. We couldn't see a thing on the summit and didn't take any pictures.  The rain soon let up after about a half hour and we had a wet walk back to the car. South Twin from the summit of North Twin
