Ascent Trip ReportHad the day off from work so I headed up to Newcomb to do another fire tower. Hit the trail for Goodnow at 10:26 and was at the summit in 50 mins. I wasn't in any rush today so I spent quite awhile at the top taking pictures and feeding a very friendly chipmunk some of my trail mix. Slipped on a wet rock heading down to the cabin and skinned my elbow pretty good. Clouds were low and rain threatened the whole time but it never came. Views from the summit were unfortunately slightly obscured. Nice trail with some benches along the way and interesting buildings and bridges to cross.
