Iowa Peak 990 / Owl's Head name

Postby markrvdl » Tue Sep 13, 2016 10:24 am

Peak 990 (http://listsofjohn.com/peak/139630) in Allamakee County, Iowa is known locally as Owl's Head.

It is known by this name on Peakbagger (on a Peakbagger trip report a hiker spoke with the landowner and confirmed it is still called that locally) and various references can be found to it in historical documents:
