Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Ones on Zealand Tr. were easy rock steps and two on Twinway were easily stepped over.

Trail Maintenance Notes: AMC crew working on Twinway above Zealand Hut improving drainage primarily. Lots of nice quality work performed already. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Other than around Guyot there seemed to be plentiful water. Several seen today.

Lost and Found
Lost and Found: First aide kit hanging near jct. with West Bond Spur; possibly left intentionally in case needed. 
Comments: Nice day in the Bonds. Didn't go down to Bondcliff (thanks Jadwiga for offer of ride around). All trails fairly dry and the few wet or muddy spots had rocks to step on if you looked close enough. The normal mix of day, few day or thru hiking traffic; all enjoying the fine weather.
