"Enjoying a weekend exploring the Whites. Started on trail Friday morning via shuttle (left a car at Zealand parking area). Hiked up to Garfield and the made our way back over the ridge where we spent the night at Galehead Hut before moving on the next day through the Twins and the Bonds. Woke up the next morning and started up the steep climb for the Twins, then over to the Guyot and the Bonds (amazing!) and out through Zealand. We were trying to beat a storm so we passed on Hale - made it to the car with thunder in the distance and a crack of lightening and downpour just as we shut the do" - deb-and-rob, Aug 12, 2017
"Hiked in the Zealand trail to hut then, continued to Zeacliff and Mount Zealand. From there hiked over Mount Guyot to the campsite for the night. Enjoyed the sunset on West Bond that night and next morning hiked out over Mount Bond and Boncliff to Lincoln woods." - blackwolf_03278, Jul 22, 2017

"Final peak of the day was Zealand. I made pretty quick work of the out and back from Guyot since I dropped my bag. Its a lot easier to hike when you don't have a backpack on. Nothing eventful on the summit of Zealand. The true summit has a sign and its in the woods, so it was just a quick picture and then back to Guyot. The sun still didn't make its way out by the time I made it back to Guyot and it remained hidden by the time I got back to South Twin. It was just barely making its way through the clouds when I made it back to North Twin. I saw some blue skies during my descent back down to th" - LGH-Tom, Jun 28, 2017
