Ascent Trip Report

Decided to do Martha so I contacted my hiking group.Those along for the hike were Deirdre , Claudette , Randy , Mark & Luna.We Hiked today knowing the weather would be clear cold but clear as Randy said clouds would in tomorrow..
Temps were in the low 30's when we started but sun was out. On Mt Martha we stopped a bit and took in the views Washington & the northern prezis tops were white with snow & frost.
By this time I had taken off my jacket & was only in a T-shirt...Hike over to Owl's Head was cold on the arms....Luna needed a little help at the scramble just before the summit but she did it Owl's head's views were FANTASTIC ....We found a spot sat had lunch & took in the views.Stayed on the summit for about 45 minutes & headed down
Getting to Mt Martha Randy & I did a cache on the summit & continued down

Great day 5.4 miles 5hrs 21 minutes
