Comments
Comments: 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.
