Comments
Comments: We wore spikes on the Lincoln Woods trail and then snowshoes at the Bondcliff junction for the rest of the day. The trail was tracked with a few sets of boots but not packed. Our group of three with snowshoes did a fair job of packing it out for now. Just enough snow for snowshoes at the trailhead though we had to deal with a lot of rock until we achieved some elevation. Then a nice deep base on the ridge though Bondcliff was stripped bare and we barefooted across the summit ridge. Plenty of unpacked snow around Bond and West Bond. A great out & back day. Thanks Sean and Danni for a great trip.
