BCP342 - Baldy Tower
Archived, schmarchived. The cap is still there, and the lookout is uninhabited at this time of year. So I took the liberty of walking up, dusting some snow off, taking a picture, the whole usual ritual. I log archived traditionals too, if I happen to find the container. Hope that's okay, thanks.
It was full winter conditions on top of this mountain, with the bonus of an on-again off-again whiteout as clouds - mostly below us - drifted past our noses. Nothing to see below, though on the horizon you could see a few peaks sticking out of the puffy clouds. We had lunch under the radio towers, and watched as the sun (we had a few minutes of sun) loosened rime ice from the guy wires and sent it all falling and sliding down. Then it socked in again, and down we went.
October is winter up here. Our cars couldn't make it up to the gate - too much snow - so we ended up hiking up almost the entire height of the mountain. A good day's hike, but wet boots for everybody.
