Goodnow Mtn
1:25pm After doing Owls Head this morning, Gudrun and I headed up to visit our second tower of the day. It’s a very clear day and we look forward to the views from the tower. The trail takes a very long switchback away from the tower, but about half the distance it takes a left and we started actually heading toward the tower. It is a nice moderate hike, nothing too steep that is for sure.
2:25 pm
What a great tower! 60 feet the tallest we have visited so far. Gudi was not willing to climb to the top of it, but this has guy wires and is very stable! Great views that is for sure! The tower even has the map of the area so you could figure out what you are looking at!! The warden’s cabin is still there and it has some very interesting pictures and write-up of the history of the tower and the warden. Very interesting for sure
We headed back down the trail at 2:55 and were back at 3:45pm. That was the best tower we have visited so far.
