Owl’s Head on our minds

Owl’s Head Mountain from the summit of Mt. Lafayette. Our hike will take us around the south base and we’ll climb up the slide to the right.

This weekend, M and I will take a large team out into the Pemi for a day long Owl’s Head hike. This is one of the 7 remaining summits Meena needs, and we did not want it to be the last.
This 19-miler will test our patience and resolve. Though much of it is on flat railroad grades, that’s a lot of miles by any standard. Throw in a couple stream crossings, a steep rocky slide and some searching to do for the actual summit and you have an epic adventure on your hands!
When Dan summitted this peak a couple years ago, solo, he swore he’d never return. Oh well, memory is short…
Our team will consist of Neil, Marianne, Chris and Eileen. And let not forget Ruby the pup, who is also going for her 4,000 footer patch! We’ll take the standard route, no bushwhacking this weekend.
That’s it for now, we’ll see you on the other side. Cheers!

  3. Hi Karl, you were right, it was epic! We'll have photos up soon.
    Annie, thanks! Owl's Head is one of the NH 4,000 footers in the White Mountains Pemi Wilderness. That shot was taken from Mt. Lafayette looking south/east.
