Ascent Trip Report

Interesting There are some old radar and communications units on top of the high point. One, the Horn Antenna is a National Historic Landmark. This was critical in proving the Big Bang theory by measuring background radiation and noise.

When I went up, the gates were wide open and nobody was around. Neat place to poke around, but I suspect when it isn't a weekend it might be locked up or at least patrolled. Maybe someone else can post additional information.
