Ascent Trip Report

Since DEC was asking people to stay off the high peaks this weekend, decided to head further south and hike some fire tower peaks. Started with Blue Mt. which went well. This was the second fire tower of the day. I actually ended up enyoying this one more than Blue Mt., contrary to my expectations. Nice views across Long Lake. Only saw 4 others the whole way on this trail and had the summit to ourselves. Sat on the stairs of the tower to relax and it worked well to escape the bugs at the same time.
