Ascent Trip ReportA very long day of hiking, but beautiful again. Whoever found that the true top of Owl's Head is another .2 miles along the ridge top, should be punished. For a hike that is already 19 mile, the added .4 miles climbing over fallen trees, just to get to some spot that is what... 1 foot higher then the top of the climb is a pain in the a$$. Oh well. Anyway I did this hike with Gary Southwick. We were unfortunately unable to make it back to the care before it got dark, but walking on the railroad trail was pretty easy with flashlights. The disturbing last image of that hike was meeting a poor woman who had lost her dog along the trail. We looked for the dog as we hike the last mile of the trail, but did not encounter it. Hopefully she was able to eventually find her dog.
