Comments: Great Day to be out with a great group. When we passed both Osseo and Black Pond they both were broken out. The Bondcliff trail had been well packed up to the chimney. After that it was partially broken and unconsolidated. Steve did the honors all day breaking as needed. Awesome job. The track is well broken and defined now all the way to the hut. Don't know what the weather will do to it but if you need these hills -- now is likely to be a good time depending upon this storm. We got out just as the first mist came to Zeland parking lot though there had been snow showers higher up. By the time we got to Lincoln Woods cars were very iced. Treacherous driving home -- the late drive always the downside to this hike. Had great views all day and a nice sunset. Steve continued onto Lend a Hand and over Hale (WOW) so those trails are somewhat broken. He beat the rest of us to the base of Hale. WOW2X. Congrats to Lori for completing her Grid on these 4 peaks!
