Comments
Comments: The morning coolness at Lincoln Woods quickly replaced by heat and humidity as we ascended Bondcliff Trail...pretty hot at times above treeline with a breezy spot once in awhile..Pretty strong sun heading up to Bond..a bit of overcast settled in which was great.

Several stretches of "war zone" along Twinway with much winter damage evident. Lots of wildflowers around Zeacliff and the walk out Zealand trail featured many many lady slippers , pink and white..great day out with Bryan.. a super huge thank you to Val for car spot and fluids at Zealand...woo hoo!!!!
