Comments
Comments: A great day to be out on the bonds, clear skies, nice temps, a refreshing breeze, and great views as always. Saw dozens out on the trails. Gale river - a few spots of mud easily avoided prior to the relocated section - the relocated section seems to be more mud than dry trail. Twinway heading up south twin has some running water but only a spot or 2 with slick rocks. Twinway to bondcliff junction has a few spots of mud. Bondciff between upper and lower stream crossings has dozens on logs you'll need to step over so keep an eye out. Lots of mud in this section as well. My thanks to the forest service for keeping the Lincoln woods open on weekends!
