Comments
Comments: Drinking water available from the spigot at Galehead Hut. The spring at Guyot Campsite was providing plenty of flowing water (we filtered it, just in case). Most tent platforms at Guyot Campsite were available when we arrived at about 4:15pm, but two or three hours later it seemed that most or all of them were occupied, even though it was not fair weather for hiking (light rain during the afternoon and strong winds continuing into the night); there were also a few tents set up along Bondcliff Trail between the Guyot Campsite Spur junction and the West Bond Spur junction. The outhouse at Guyot Campsite had no toilet paper, so bring your own. After setting up tents and eating dinner at Guyot Campsite, we did an out-and-back to West Bond, hoping to see the sunset since the clouds started clearing a little, but the clouds blew strongly across the area, giving only occasional glimpses of nearby mountains, and we did not see the sun at all.
