    Options for Bonds Hik

    We just stayed at Guyot, they had a bear up there a couple of weeks ago. The site has some nice sturdy locking bear boxes. They charge $8 per person. We arrived around 1PM and by 3PM they were filling up pretty fast. When we camped off the Bondcliff trail the day before, we hung our food.
    But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.

    Quieter, more remote, away from the hub bub of the shelter and tent platforms.
    Indeed, but also a long way from the outhouse, the bear box, and the spring.

    If you want that level of luxury, you might consider staying at a hut!

    The problem is that too many people up in overflow only use one of those three things.

    What day of the week did you camp at Guyot? We are attempting to get there on Friday afternoon to avoid the Saturday crowds.
