Comments: Great two day trip. We started Wednesday morning and made our way to Guyot Campsite. After setting up the tent we went to Bond and Bondcliff. Made it back just before a violent thunderstorm. Next morning we quickly visited West Bond and then headed over Guyot, Zealand and down to the hut. We went up to Hale and easily found the FWT at the North-West corner of the summit. 2.2 miles later we were down to the river and shortly back to the car. The heat was taxing even though we had lots of water. Met nice people all along the way. Some local NH dayhikers near Guyot, Father-Son doing the Pemi loop at Guyot, a soon to be dad we met near Bond, one hiker who started at the presidentials who stayed at the shelter, a couple who camped at Zealand through the storm, So-Bo retired couple, and last a trail runner who ran past us on LAH trail coming from Hale.
