There were two guys huddled behind the wall here trying to heat up some beef stew with their jetboil.

A quick stop on the way. We started our day at Galehead Hut and were heading for Greenleaf Hut. We stooped here to eat.

Visited the summit of Mt. Garfield today along with BeamJockey. We stuck around long enough to get a few views in between the heavy cloud cover.

You can see the remains of the lookout tower to my right, and Owl's Head is the peak behind me.

A classic NH peak with great views!

I visited the remains of the lookout tower on a beautiful mid-winter day. This is one of the best views in the whole White Mountains.

Actually the tower cab is dismantled; what remains is the subtantial concrete foundation on the summit of the mountain.

Another great Vacation Day Excellant views

1/10/76 I vote this as "Mark destroyed" as the tower itself has been gone since the '50s
