Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First 2 crossings of Little River looked like "wet feet" after rain the night before so we opted to bypass using the easily followed bushwhack on east side of river. 3rd crossing very easy on rocks next to log handrail. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Bondcliff Tr. could use brushing in spots between summit and old Wilderness Tr. jct.. North Twin Tr. and North Twin Spur in nice shape. Another thanks to Forest Service for opening Lincoln Woods Tr. on weekends.

Comments: Thru-hikers, day-hikers, backpackers, Pemi-loopers etc. all agreeing that it was a great day to be in the Twins and Bonds today. Felt like we got the pleasure of 2 hikes for 1 today with carspot; what a deal! Several we talked to had crossed East Branch Friday or earlier and all said it was about knee deep with a rather swift current. One group said that about 4:00 on Friday they were the first group that they let through.
