| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||2020 ft / 615 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThis climb completes my PB'S "New Hampshire Fire Towers" List.
I left the TH with 1-2 inches thick blanket of fresh snow, summitted with 3-4 inches. A light fine snow fall thruout the easy/moderate climb made for fairly good conditions, not as wet as yesterday's climb on Croydon Peak. I was out at the TH fairly dry.
The summit has a Tower and a few boarded-up sheds, visibility was very poor so I got out there once I had my photos. The mountain is all one beautiful deciduous open forest, the buds were opened at the bottom but not at the top ..... there is something special about being in an foliage-free open forest, I just love seeing the shape of its floor with the bare trees, reminds me somewhat of the curves and crevices in a woman's nude body.
I wore my old leather Scarpa boots, for the descent I tied on spiked rubber soles, perfect wear for these conditions. I didn't slip once, unlike yesterday.
DIRECTIONS TO THE TH from "Center Harbor" on Hwy #25 at the north end of Lake Winnipesaukee.
At the stop lights on Hwy #25, east lights are for Junction #25/25B, 100 feet west lights are for Bean Road. Zero your odo here (0.00 mile) and travel north on Bean Road to a right turn (1.5 mile) on Sibley Road. Continue to its end, a T-junction with Red Hill Road (2.6 miles), make a left and drive to the TH Parking (2.8 miles) on the right.
"TO SIT IN AN OPEN FOREST ON A FINE DAY AND LOOK UPON ITS BARE FLOOR IS THE MOST PERFECT REFRESHMENT."
