Comments
Comments: Primarily posted this report for found glove above as conditions most likely have changed after snow last night. Ron K and I hiked into Zealand Hut on Monday and spent the night at Zealand Hut and hiked out over the Bonds on Tuesday. Wore spikes to hut and both trails were well broken out. Put on snowshoes for most all of hike on Tuesday. Found it better to change to spikes or even bare boots on rocks and at Guyot and coming down Bond and on Bondcliff summit. Also used spikes to go down Hillary Stumble. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had the summits to ourselves. Found an interesting section of Bondcliff trail with significant postholing by a moose.
