||Found a pair of sunglasses on West Bond. Also a shenandoah national park multi-functional headwear by Buff on Bondcliff trail. I left both at the L.W. ranger station. ||
||Spent the night of 5/21 at Guyot campsite. All trails were clear of snow for the most part. Except for the part between Mt Bond and Guyot Campsite, there were patches that were avoidable. Bondcliff trail can be hard to follow at times but nothing to bad. Guyot campsite's mess of downed trees have been cleared. The new platforms are nice. Site 4 has a great view. 3 people total when I stayed there. |
There is major blowdowns on West Bond spur trail. This area looked like it got hit hard. You will have to go into the woods and hike parrell with the knocked down trees for about 1/10 of a mile.
It was a good out and back to the Bonds on a nice clear day. Saw a total of 12 people the entire trip.
