    Great TR and beautiful photos. Spending quality time with family and friends like you did is what life is all about, despite how initial plans turn out.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone. It was truly a wonderful experience (and one we all learned a lot from). It won't be our last backpacking attempt for sure and we'll make less (or at least different) mistakes next time. That's all part of the fun...

    Getting to Bondcliff was what made it really great. Someplace I've always wanted to get to (and now want to go back to along with the rest of the Bonds) .

    Jim - I loved the parallel to the story with the "snacks for 2 days" with the kids. I could just picture all the food being brought out and collected!

    I'd like to point out, Mark, that Tim went WAY closer to the edge on Bondcliff than you did... if your feet aren't dangling, are you really at the edge????

    This may give you a better idea...
    I don't have a shot that shows how much further it goes. Seems like several thousand feet when you're standing (or sitting in my case) on top!
