Ascent Trip Report

I arrived at the former site for the Salem Lookout Tower just before sunset. The only thing that remains of the tower are the support anchors. but you can drive right to this spot and easily bag the Lee County high point. There are two communication towers near the high point, but a short distance to the northwest is a very heavily posted gate with several more communication towers beyond. These posted signs extend into the unfenced forest beside the gate which made me very curious what they were protecting, but not curious enough the find out! I watched the sunset and left.
