Left work early today and headed out in search of fire towers. 0 for 2 on the fire towers I'm afraid. I followed the map I posted and tried Elk Mt. first. The map lead me to a trail that looked promising so I lugged my sorry ass up this wicked steep rutted trail. No way I could have ridden the DR up that trail and I was riding the Tiger so didn't even think about it. Made it to the top and I was at the top of the chair lifts! The map shows the tower farther to the east. Couldn't see any towers around so that one was a bust, Same for the Snow Hill Rd site in the Poconos. This trail was gated so I walked but could have ridden the DR on it. No fire tower there either, damn. I'm sure I was at the right location there but it didn't even seem high enough to warrant a tower. Maybe that map isn't very accurate. I'll keep searching.
Here's a link to that map source.

A few pics from today. It was gorgeous out so not finding any towers wasn't that bad really. Nice riding and beautiful temps in the high 60's.

On a detour caused by a washed out bridge. Glad I had to go that way...



HAPPY HAY!



No tower but there was one flower, just one...
