Our 3rd adventure of the day, after Catamount Mountain and Cooperas Pond was Owl's Head off Route 73 in Keene, NY. Like many people, we'd driven past Owl's Head many times and hadn't stopped because it was "too short a hike". Well on this day it was 4 PM as we were driving by, and we thought..... it's time.
It was still a nice sunny day, and a .6 mile scramble was be a nice way to end the day. We saw 4 other groups doing the same thing. It was well worth the trip. The summit is quite intereting, and different from other summits in the area.

As we decended, 2 women were on there way up to see the sunset and moonrise. Not a bad idea.
