Comments
Comments: Significant ice the last mile up quite navigalbe without traction, but light traction wouldn't hurt. The rail section was very icy and worth a walk around. Frankly, some of the dryer leaves at the bottom were more slippery than anything higher up. Fire tower door bolted shut until it gets "fixed." Can still climb stairs for view. Nice day to be out with Joe and Kara.
