Ascent Trip Report

just east of the intersection of 52 and 44 find the tower access road on the right. Apparently this was gated at one time, but no longer so. The road is rough, and it was muddy and slushy today. Did a bit of slipping and sliding even with my Jeep. I parked at a convenient spot about 100 feet below the top and walked up to the tower area and around the area a bit to see the surrounding views including whole mountains chopped off by strip mining.
