Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up Fort Mountain with my father during the late afternoon. The tower road was almost completely devoid of snow, and there were some nice views off the road. The summit, however, was very windy, so much that we had a little trouble standing at times. I didn't have a wind instrument with me, but I estimate that the wind was about 40 mph. The views were still nice, albeit obstructed by clouds. We ate behind the building at the summit and then headed back down.
