Comments
Comments: Was looking forward to hiking out with some company until the gloves messed things up. Followed beaten path up Brutus BW without any issues but lost trail on way down and had 15-20 minutes of a real BW; just went downward and towards sound of brook. Came out a little closer to the last brook crossing. Start of Brutus BW was marked on two trees about 3 feet apart. Trails overall were still fairly dry; most likely changing. Nice Owl's Head day with some rain, wind and cloudy conditions.
