Comments
Comments: Gorgeous day for a Bonds traverse! We hiked in yesterday over Hale to Zealand Hut and over the Bonds today. Spikes or bare boots for the road and spikes for the Hale Brook trail. Hale is totally broken out, but we switched to snow shoes for Lend-a-Hand. The Bonds are also fully broken out. A huge thank you to Bill who broke Trail from Zealand to West Bond and to Marvin for breaking out the Bondcliff Trail from the Lincoln Woods side to the West Bond Spur. The trail is well packed. We wore snowshoes from the hut, switching to spikes somewhere near the end of the Bondcliff trail. Bondcliff itself was icy, we saw one hiker in crampons on the summit. At least a dozen people completed a Bonds traverse and several more hiked an out and back from Lincoln Woods. Due to the high snowpack, there were views to Washington from Hale. There were also a lot of face scratching and pack grabbing branches along the Twinway and Bondcliff Trail.
