My baby brother dropped off his Ranger ATV for us to use for the afternoon so we headed for the hills.
It was quite a view from the top of the hill. A view I have never seen before because this area was all mature trees.
There is a Fire Tower at the top of the hill. When I was a young bike riding gal we would walk our bikes uphill and then see how far we could get coasting down...a perfect rendition of a thrill ride for country kids.
I have not been to the base of the tower for many years. My baby brother reports that the first 20 feet of the ladder have been removed.
I climbed to the top only once in my lifetime and that was once too many for me. My baby brother and Danny coaxed me down...knowing if I didn't come back down they were going to be in big trouble. That was the first and last time they talked me into climbing the tower...after that I was always the third person to go up...I would reach the treetops and then go back down.
A few Maple leaves are turning.
