Comments
Comments: Trails in good condition and easy to follow. Views from the Bonds were great with the lower humidity. Guyot Campsite caretaker forming rock barrier at summit of Mt Bond to encourage hikers to remain in summit area rather than wandering about trampling alpine vegetation. A couple of researchers from Ct inventorying plant species on the Bond - Bondcliff ridgeline. Met a man planning to complete the NH 48 on July 4th by summiting the three Bonds.
