Comments: Two night, three day trip to Owl's Head, base camped at Thirteen Falls. Caretaker arrived at Thirteen Falls on Friday night. Hiked up to Galehead on Friday, met a large group that came from Zealand hut remarking about trudging and postholing between, they were pretty wet. We brought microspikes on our trip but they stayed in the pack the entire time, there was just mild remnants of monorail on Owl's Head and Twin Brook.
