Comments
Comments: Overall a fantastic day. Up to hut is quick, bugs not bad in the morning (only at car). Lots of folks out hiking - two groups, one AMC and one not. Plenty of overnighters and pemi-loop backpackers tagging Zealand. Every hiker Kaylee and I came across was in a great mood and happy to be outside. All trails in great condition, only one small and easy to step over blowdown I remember. Considerable water in some spots, especially by the junction for Zeacliff lookout. Most of the mud could be avoided by rocks on trails. None of the crossings were an issue. Happy hiking :)
