Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: The trails were mainly dry. The few wet and muddy areas frequently had railroad ties, rocks, roots, or bypasses to help get by with dry boots. The brook crossings were not difficult at today's water levels although that could change with rainfall. New wood railing on Licoln Woods trail in place of the orange mesh fencing at the washed out banking along the East Branch.
Perfect weather for a hike to the Bonds. Just a smidgeon of snow on the Bondcliff Trail just north of the summit of Mt Bond. Painted Trillium, Red Trillium, Clintonia, and Hobblebush flowering at the lower elevation while Diapensia was in bloom in the alpine zone between Bondcliff and Mt Bond.
Met and had conversations with many other hikers including Brian and Crystal the trail maintainers for the Isolation Trail.
