Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found an older camera near Zealand summit on Sunday belonging to a man with a red beard. 
Comments: A little snow left on the AT sections and between Bond and West Bond spur. Would have used spikes had I brought them but not needed.

No Caretaker at Guyot yet, maybe this weekend. Platforms were all full but only a few people in the shelter. Fire Warden Trail very easy to find and stay on from Hale. Beautiful smooth trail and great way to wind down a long trip. Lend-A-Hand was great too. Pics and trip report coming soon.
