Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found: graffiti on the Bondcliff Trail?! Black spray paint on some small boulders, not sure how long it's been there but I have never noticed it before. The artist was either going for eyes or boobs, or both.  
 
Comments
Comments: Awesome day to be out on the Bonds. Very light rain on and off, a few minor wind gusts and pretty warm for this time of year (the rime was melting off the trees which was way more soaking than the occasional passing shower).

There was a significant amount of melted/fallen rime ice on the col from Bond to West Bond...slippery stuff but not enough to warrant wearing any kind of traction.
