Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There was an orange water bottle along the “new” portion of the Bondcliff Trail on the way down that wasn’t there on the way in. It’s still there as we weren’t sure if the owner was coming back.  
 
Comments
Comments: Long day out in the woods, trail had been decently traveled to the wilderness boundary, lightly traveled after that. Nobody had been above the turn uphill since the new snow, so we were “breaking” (only a few inches) trail above that. Snow got considerably deeper above the higher two crossings so I’d recommend snowshoes for that portion. We barefooted from the top of Bondcliff to Bond and then back down as the snow had mostly blown off of the alpine zone. We admittedly did leave some postholes below both Bond and Bondcliff but the snow was generally not deep enough for these to really be a problem. Only saw a few people out all day!
