Comments
Comments: Excellent hike of these peaks and was able to catch a beautiful sunrise from Zeacliff. Micros went on at Zealand Hut and remained on until descending Mt Bond leaving the krumolz. There is just a trace of snow no more than 1/2 inches with stretches of ice mostly from the hut to Mt Guyot. Bondcliff trail had lots of water flow on the trail as well as mud. It was nice crossing paths with a familiar hiker in a small group today as well as chatting with another Gridder at West Bond and Bondcliff. Trails were very quiet today
