|Lost and Found:
||Someone lost one MicroSpike, as we past it before getting the Zealand Mtn, for it was hanging from a tree. ||
||The above treeline portion of Guyot, and Bondcliff was nicely windblown, but we were find with just keeping our snowshoes on.|
The trail is hard packed, and excellent now for snowshoes, we cleaned up postholing from a group staying at Guyot shelter on Tuesday evening, but the problem now, is they were behind us heading back to Lincoln Woods, so I am sure they left lots of damage to a well groomed trail, especially as the weather get colder, for Wednesday was very warm and the snow softened up considerable... the damage would be from Bondcliff to Lincoln Woods.
I was in snowshoes from start to finish.
