Our pumpkins. Doggy, toothless smile, and a toothy triangle face.
Starting out to owls head on a misty, gray wet day.
He's ready to go!
Tikko has decided he'll trust me to at stream crossings. He was rigth on my heels on the way out, and lead the way on the way back. Good, brave dog! Tessa demonstrates how high the water was. No swimming required, but there were some deeper holes.
Tikko crosses with speed
Luckily, there was a cairn marking the 'path' up to Owl's Head.
Moose carcass, this moose probably fell off Owl's Head.
This isn't even the steep part!
Tessa is waiting for direction. Are you sure you want to do this?
Most of the trail was a rockfall, and all of it was slippery wet. It took an hour to get up, an hour and a half down. All of one mile!
On the summit- I think... the trail ended here so I think it was the high point.
Cairn on Owl's Head summit.
Berries, and bare birches on the slip down.
Tikko looking down the rock slide
Mist and winter scenary.
Most of the trail out was mud. Used to be a logging railroad, and there was some evidence of that, as thi iron train piece shows.
Tikko lead the way across the final river crossing.
Tikko doesn't want to leave!
Spur off Carrigain
Fire tower on the summit.
I made Tikko turn around. He would've been able to climb up but I didn't think he'd like climbing down.
Oh no! Are you OK up there?
View. The top of the Presidentials are shrouded in clouds.
Fun with moss.
Well near the summit.
This is a well, not an outhouse, I checked.
Tessa poses at the view.
More of Tessa.
Tikko and another hiker.

Beech forest on the trail back.
Enjoying the brief sunlight.
Tessa looks for a culvert.
Trail up Mount Field wastes no time.
