Galehead

Hiked Galehead on 10/24/14. This was peak number 515 for “The Grid over 60”. It was supposed to be cloudy and maybe some drizzle in the morning and then clear up some in the afternoon. The clearing never happened and it drizzled during the entire hike with a lot of drops falling off the trees. It was a pretty wet hike. The trail was pretty wet and muddy with the rains from earlier in the week. Here is the trail sign at the trailhead.

There was a lot of water in the smaller streams and in the Gale River.

The Galehead hut was closed for the winter. I had hoped to sit on the bench on the front porch but the wind had blown the rain and drizzle onto the bench and it was quite wet. I did eat my PBJ there on my return from the summit.
