Date of hike: March 28, 2009.

Conditions: Lincoln Brook Trail is packed snow & ice.
Bare bootable with light traction. The Wilderness,
Bondcliffs, & West Bond Spur trails are packed snow.
Snowshoes should be used to maintain the trails.
Lots of bare ledges and bare rocks on the Bondcliff
ledges. Light traction useful on patchs of ice & snow.
Streams either still bridged or easily passable.

Comments: A fine day for an out & back of the Bonds.
Temps mostly in the 30's on the summits and summit
ridges. Mostly sunny with views of 30-50 miles. Light
breeze of mostly less than 5 MPH.

West Bond completed my "55th" complete loop of the
"NH 48" four thousand footers.

My thanks to all who join on so many of my hikes.
