Ascent Trip Report

I took Ken Jones advice and booked this lookout as a weekend getaway. See Ken's report for details.
As I sit here enjoying the great views and entering my log in peakbagger (cell service is available on top), I can see the peaks I will be attempting in the next couple days. My fear of heights is starting to subside a little, but this tower is high nonetheless.
The road coming in was pretty good, high clearance may be required towards the end.
Valleys are a bit smokey, but I bet the views will be great in the morning.
