Comments
Comments: Rain all day, so wet trail was expected. We had to be more mindful on the way down due to wet/ slippery rocks. Galehead Hut had a water spigot outside, but seemed closed (although we didn’t try to go inside). Rain meant minimal bugs and few people. If you don’t mind being a little wet, it was overall a nice peaceful day in the White Mountains!
