Comments
Comments: Just a dusting of snow at Lincoln Woods when I went in and returned but it was snowing hard while I was getting in the car to leave. Just enough snow to cover the ice on the LW trail. I went without traction until the stairs after the 3rd brook crossing on the Bondcliff trail. Stayed with those until ascending Bond. Snow was drifted to about knee deep so I switched to snowshoes. Nice snow over to West Bond. Started sunny, snowed crossing the Bonds and back and then the sun started to come back out when I hit Bondcliff on the return. Wind had picked up but was only 10-15 MPH. Spotted a Saw-Whet Owl again right next to the trail. 2nd time in a month after never seeing one in the wild.
