Comments
Comments: Epic 19 mile out and back hike to the bonds today. Lucked out and missed the rain in the afternoon by minutes. Lots of wet muddy trails and a few patches of snow left between Zeacliff and Zealand Mountain, between Zealand Mountain and Mt. Guyot, and between Guyot and Mt. Bond. They are short, no more than 50 feet long and traction is not required. No ice and what little snow is there is not deep. Beautiful day out there today. There will be a lot more standing water and mud on the trails after the rain in the forecast.
