Comments
Comments: All the trails are in pretty good shape. Just a few blowdowns on the beginning part of Bondcliff trail. Some patchy mud but avoidable. Rivers crossings are easy. The snow is completely gone from everywhere, even West Bond. There were some mosquitoes along the streams in the lower elevations, but that should be expected this time of year. There is a sweet spot between about 2600' and treeline where there are no bugs. But once we got to treeline there were swarms of black flies everywhere. Once back in the trees up to Bond and West Bond they disappeared again. It was a beautiful day, but I would have preferred more wind to keep them away. The West Bond Spur was in surprisingly good shape. Snow is all gone, and the blowdowns have all been cleared. Sill a good hike despite the bugs.
