Comments
Comments: A super day for a ZBonds hike. Nice views early from Zeacliff turned breezy
with low visibility until just beyond Mt Guyot where clouds broke for a bit and then back into the soup until shortly after descending from Mt Bond. At this point the clouds cleared partially revealing moody skies and epic views.The winds subsided as well. It was very inspiring speaking with Hiker Ed and a 72 year old single day Pemi Looper hiking the loop in reverse. Trails fairly quiet today only saw approximately 18 other hikers before the Wilderness Boundary.
