If you're like us, you've always wanted to spend a winter weekend at 13 Falls. It's a magical place and the snow and ice should be wonderful. And now's your chance! We'll backpack in along the Franconia Brook Trail on Friday and stay there Friday and Saturday nights. On Saturday, we'll get some peak, but which one will depend on trail conditions and weather. We may climb up to the ridge and do a loop over Garfield and Galehead, or possibly approach Owls' Head from the north via the Lincoln Brook trail.
