Bare Mountain Top

The part of the mountain most visited is worn down to the exposed face. I spend several hours soaking up the sun on this beautiful day.

Fire Tower Secured By Guidewires

This is due to being on an open rock face, strong winds. It was rock stead (pun intended), climbing it with 50 MPH winds on Friday.

Descending the Hill

It was such a beautiful day for a hike. It was 70 degrees, with a brisk breeze.

Back when the Fire Tower was actively used for surveying fires, in the era-prior the mid-1980s, the ranger would have lived here.
