Comments
Comments: With weather that couldn't be beat (considering it's November, and the full on winter conditions I've been in the past couple of weeks), Anya and I set off on a Zealand/Bonds traverse right around sunrise. By the time we reached the hut, we were warm enough to get down to t-shirts, and basically stayed that way the rest of the day. Smooth sailing from car to car, with an excellent spruce grouse encounter just before Guyot, and cold beers on Bondcliff. It sure has been one weird autumn, but we'll take it!
