Comments
Comments: Three of us completed a Z Bonds Traverse from north to south. We did stop off at Zeacliff (one of my favorites), went to Zealand, stopped on Guyot, took the spur to West, then passed over Bond and Bondcliff on our way back to Lincoln Woods. Dozens and dozens of happy hikers out there, people doing out and back from Lincoln Woods, others on the Z-B traverse, and some really impressive Pemi loop runners!! We ran into a few groups who had had a great night at the Guyot site Feiday night. It was a great day above tree line with mostly sunny skies and light winds. The rain didn’t start until we cleared the stairs up to the parking lot at Lincoln Woods - so lucky!!
