Next batch up, still in Maine:

The Owl

I'll be honest, except for East Royce I have no clue on these. 8)

 Re: The list round 12
Looks like a +10 to me too. I haven't been to many of these, but recall enough great pictures from each.

That is assuming The Owl is the Baxter State Park peak, otherwise I need more evidence.

I do have some pictures from lower ledges of Puzzle from when I did the Grafton Loop last summer. Not too many good pictures due to my frame of mind at that point in the day, but it definitely belongs on this list. The summit is close to 360-views, unlike what this picture suggests.

And Brian, you need to get to Sunday River Whitecap.

You know what, here's my TR link for the Grafton Loop. It has lots of pictures from Sunday River Whitecap, and a few more from Puzzle. http://mattshikes.blogspot.com/2015/09/grafton-loop-backpack-at-last.html

I'll vote for all 10 as well. Even though I also have only been to half.

After I posted this I went over the maps and remembered this one has been on the to-do list for some time now. My usual excuse....a respectable drive, so I just have not managed to fit it in just yet. Might have to change that. :D

Believe me, that was a large part of why I took so long to get back up there once the GLT was officially open. The summit is also a bit lengthy to get to for a day hike, unless you use the unofficial route that comes up to near the col to the North. I don't have more info on that, but I bet you do ;) I was after the whole loop so it didn't matter for me.

Royce, East Yes I had a mediocre day, but no question there are views
Sargent Yes
Schoodic abstain
Sentinel abstain
Speckled Yes
Sunday River Whitecap abstain
The Owl abstain

 Re: The list round 12
I'm not going to vote just yet, but I just wanted to say we did a loop to Speckled Mountain last week and it was without doubt one of the best hikes I've ever done. Up Blueberry Ridge, down Bickford Brook. We did it this way due to threats of rain, probably many would do it in reverse so that they can enjoy looking at the views as they descend Blueberry. The view from the summit itself is exquisite, and there were fire tower remains. And there are Grey Jays there for your entertainment.

Well, I will go on faith here and say yes to all 10. So I guess this makes another round of unanimous votes. 8)
