Ascent Trip Report

I was a 10-year-old on vacation with my parents. My mother had a fear of heights and waited in the car while my Dad and I walked up the trail and climbed the observation tower. I wish my memories of the trees were more clear, since I know many of them have died due to acid rain since my first visit.
