Comments: Excellent hike with a fellow Gridder of Mt Lafayette thru to Mt Lincoln before descending via Lincoln Slide and up to Owl's Head. Picture perfect day with light winds. We met a few Single Day Pemi hikers as well as many others ascending/descending Owl's Head. it was nice chatting with a couple of hikers at the summit. A beautiful day for sure.Crossing #1 after leaving Owl's Path was slightly elevated but still no problem crossing #2 and #3 were low. Before taking BP herdpath we looked at large crossing that as well was very low.
