    Default Hey, Somebody Get This Owl Off My Back! - Owl's Head - 5-12-12

    I've been dreading this hike since the day that we decided that we were going to finish the 48 (and for a while it was the reason that I knew we'd never finish). Once again, the mountains hold great surprises. What a fantastic day we had! Great people to hike with, a bit of every condition that you could hope to find in a day and to top it off, seeing Geneva get her 48 finish! Thanks to Kim, Hui Yeng, Christine, Owen, Steve-o and most of all Geneva for making our 37th peak the most memorable one yet!


    There's so much story to be told - it's all here (and perhaps a bit more):

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Bob is right, you do make it look like fun. I don't think that I could ever do that...

    Too bad you didn't see an owl, but I can't beleive how many eggs they lay.
    Always learning from here...

    Mark, your pics are incredible. I personally never hiked more then 11 miles, so your trip seems overwhelming to me. My goals is to hike this same trail, also the Bonds and then eventually the Presidential Traverse. These maybe a "whats the big deal" to some but I would feel a sense of accomplishment if I was able to do any of them. I enjoy your blog. congrats from dbcooperisalive
