Comments: No snow\ice until just before Bond and after Bond leading most of the way to and up West Bond. Rotting spring snow, no traction required but it does slow you down a bit.

On the return trip, I encountered a distressed hiker who was severely dehydrated, confused, disoriented, and in generally tough shape. It was his first time hiking and he was attempting a pemi loop. Dead phone, no GPS, no map, no compass, no water, did not know where he was. The hike to that point had been nicely paced and smooth, but I ended up assisting him down the mountain which was exhausting and took the entire day. Back to my car for sunset. He is fine now and it was a learning experience for both of us. Seperately, I bumped into two guys running the loop.. nice work fellas, shoot me a message for the picture I snapped of you on Bond
