Kane Fire Tower
Sunny 68 degrees
Gudrun and I have a plan to visit 3 fire towers today. This is the first and it starts out quickly into a climb. Gudi started up at 9:45 am while I was still getting my camera ready and boots on. Since this is such a short hike, I just barely caught her before we arrived at the tower at 10:05 am. The summit is treed. It looks like earlier there were clearings cut, but they have since grown in so no views unless you climb the tower. The sky has been covered by a thin layer of clouds, but still nice views from the tower. After a quick climb and a look around the area, including a visit to what is left of the fire warden cabin we headed back town at 10:25 am and reached the car at 10:40am.
