Comments
Comments: Long and fantastic day in the Pemi. Lincoln Woods is a firm highway, wore spikes to 4 mile brook, from there it was snowshoes for the rest of the day. A pretty good track from wilderness to the precipice before Bondcliff, which there is so much snow you wouldn't know it's even there. Bondcliff to Bond is fine except when you get into treeline, it will get you to the summit but boy is it goes everywhere but the trail. Bond to West Bond was fine, as where the spurs (fine for snowshoes). From there we broke from W Bond junction to Twinway, where we ran into WonderWoman & Superpup coming from Z. What a moral boost that was. We firmed up her single track. Again it's a little off but it will get you there. The Zealand spur trail is an absolute mess, it doesnt go from the junction, its just a straight up whack to it. Twinway from Z junction to hut is in great shape, as is Zealand trail on the way out.

The trees are getting really, really short, so bring a shell or something to protect you from the carwash limbs
