Comments
Comments: Beautiful hike of these peaks and great time descending the Lincoln Slide following the drainage most of the way to the brook. Lots of loose scree in the slide and slippery rocks in the drainage. Owl's Head was a busy peak today with many backpackers and hikers enjoying this beautiful day. It was nice chatting with an incredibly strong and inspiring hiker today.It truly made my afternoon!
