Ascent Trip Report

The landowner came out when I was on the road taking photos. He was very nice and we talked about the lookout for a bit. He showed me some things from the lookout that he had in his home and after a bit asked if I'd like to go up to the cab. I was delighted and said yes I would. The lower section of stairs are removed but he has a ladder rigged up that he lowered into place and we ascended from there. He bought the tower and the 2 acres of land it sits on 20 years ago and built his home next to the tower.
As I was preparing to drive away later on he came out of the house with old visitor logs from the 1950's and 60's. I was entranced by this information and he also had a "Towerman Smoke Log" book dating back to 1952!! This guy was great and I really appreciated seeing this memorabilia. Certainly a highlight of the day for sure :-)
