Comments
Comments: Today was suppose to be Mt. Success. But Success Pond road was awful. So, I ended up at Owl's Head and having never hiked this before, I figured, why not. From this side, it's really steep in places but I pushed through and had a nice rest at the summit. Great mix of terrain from wet and swampy down low to dirt, to rocks... Enjoyed this one and will probably come back for Martha some other time.
