water purification equipment a good idea for this hike even with the galehead hut along the way.
great day for the loop/horseshoe. we went clockwise and did side trips to galehead and west bond. the day started with us following a bear down the lincoln woods trail who seemed quite reluctant to get out of our way until a few sharp pole cracks finally sent him running. gorgeous conditions above treeline and decent temps all day. congratulations to cynthia on completing her first pemi. great day to be out.
