Cohos SOBO 2021 Day 12 – Starr King to Owls Head

Day 12 started a bit slow. Peakbaggers were heading up as I broke camp and headed down to Jefferson.

First past the golf course.

Then the fishing pond before hitting the corner store deli for a 9am sub

The road walk was pretty enough and I broke out the umbrella for shade.

The Cherry Pond section was amazing once at the pond. The trail over there was rocky and grassy always a bad combo.

The rail trail was hot so I was happy to see the turn on Slide Brook. Then things took some bad turns. First I missed the Owls Head path, then broke a buckle on my pack. The one that holds the bear can.

I rigged some things to hold it and headed up the climb with intent of getting over Martha as well. Instead Owls Head broke me and I had to camp just below the summit as darkness fell. The beast legs had finally met their match. No pics were taken hehe.
