"2 semaines solo de pure plaisir à faire du hiking à différentes places dont les Whites Moutains. Grosse journée qui commence à la noirceur. J'ai essuyé une tempête de l'enfer ici. Par chance la Galehead Hut était encore ouverte au sommet. J'ai pu m'y réfugier le temps que cela se calme un peu. Sur Garfield, les vents étaient horribles! Ils me trainaient par terre." - fsoucy76, Sep 21, 2018
"We were happy to take advantage of the great whether after a month of rain and conflicting appointments. As usual, our packs were larger than necessary, especially in comparison to the group we saw who were trail running the whole Pemigewasset Loop that day.

"Another Grid peak for me and helped out Marielle for her NH48W. Doug also went up to grab Galehead and the Twins. Denise and Briana also joined us. The trail was broken out. We used spikes the whole way up. Low cloud cover today. " - newenglandwarrior, Mar 11, 2018
"After Garfield, our Meetup group we went over to Galehead Mtn. We took the steep part off of Garfield slowly and had no issues. After Galehead, we went down Galehead River Tr. This was a Grid peak gain." - newenglandwarrior, Dec 2, 2017
"After Garfield, I followed Garfield Ridge Tr and hiked up Galehead. I then went down the trail to 13 Falls Tentsite, grabbed my gear, and made the long flat hike back to the Lincoln Woods parking lot. Did it in under 3.5 hours. An awesome couple of days." - newenglandwarrior, Sep 22, 2017
