The owner of the campsite we stayed at a couple weekends back during our trip to the PA Grand Canyon told us about the fire tower that was just a short hike from camp.
She said she had never climbed it even when she weighed a lot less due to fear of heights. Now, I normally don't have a fear of heights unless of course are you asking me to climb off the ladder and onto the roof....and that I vote no on.
It didn't seem too high from the ground. Looked pretty cool even. So we payed our $2 to the unmanned visa machine and entered into the thicket at the bottom. I even had the kids crouch down in the jungle! See them below?
At some point half way up when we ran across something that had left jinourmous droppings containing small mammal bones and someone else reminded us all about the scene from Jurassic Park where they were in the
Scene from Jurassic Park
I was much more excited when we got to the top and I could sit in the MIDDLE of the tower away from the sides..
What a great view though and not a dinosaur in sight!
Happy Hump Day!
