Comments
Comments: A little wet/muddy for most of the hike, then scattered ice and snow from near Bondcliff summit and on, as well as a couple inches of snow on the way to West Bond. Weather was rough early (50-60mph winds when we hit Bondcliff), though by the afternoon it had warmed up substantially and the wind had died down. Given the warm weather over the weekend, I'd expect much of the ice/snow to have melted and much muddier conditions as a result. Stream crossings were manageable, though a little tricky when the rocks were iced. 22.6 miles / 11hrs.
