Route: Cherry Mtn Trail to Mt. Martha, Martha's Mile to Owl's Head. Return same way.
Weather: High clouds, filtered sunshine, little wind.
Awesome views from both peaks, especially towards the Presis. Saw some smoke on Washington, looked like the far side. Cog was in operation that day. Talked to a nice gentleman (must be Ed judging by VFFT trail cx) from NY on OH before leaving him with the view. Lots of deer or moose poop on Martha's Mile. Martha's Mile is a fantastic little trail. Great footing, and very closed in in places. Helluva short steep patch before Owl's head though!
