Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Brown hat on Zealand trail left on a branch.  
Comments: Bare booted to Zealand hut then donned snowshoes for the rest of the trip. Packed trail to Zealand, but nothing after. Broke Zealand to about a mile below Bondcliff where we ran into to guys heading for Guyot campsite. There was 1 set of bare boot prints to the first big cairn on Bondcliff coming from Lincoln Woods, but didn't help much. The bottom of Bondcliff trail and Lincoln Woods was getting sticky and mushy by the end. Everyone else in my group ditched their snowshoes at Osseo, but I want that smart. All in all it was a good day up there. Some sun, some clouds, some rain, some snow, views, no visibility... you name it!
