Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All easy rock hops. Some were bone dry coming down from Bondcliff. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A little brushy on Bondcliff between the peaks and heading down (south) from Bondcliff. "Walkway Pads" could maybe be extended going up to Franconia Falls as people are walking around muddy patches and widening/eroding the trail bed. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a few on Lincoln Woods Trail near the lot, but none on the Bonds. Would be nice for them with good water, but the stairs on Bondcliff could be a little tough coming down for them. 
Bugs: None, except a few on the Death march back to the lot.

Comments: Closed out a wet and mostly viewless weekend with a great day on the Bonds. Up early and left Guyot site right around sunrise and caught awesome views from Bondcliff Trail of it. Going down was still quite wet from the night before's thunderstorms, so most of the rocks were slick. Muddy on Bondcliff as you got closer to the brook, but not terrible. little patches of mud here and there on Lincoln Woods. Surprisingly large number of open spots at the lot, but a few cars still out on the Kanc (probably overnighters). Bath/soak in the Pemi after 3 days in the woods was tremendous.
