What I'm not sure about is how many people are aware that there is a group which was formed last fall to begin a restoration project for our fire tower. Trail clearing was begun before winter set in - part of the trail will likely be rerouted eventually. The Stillwater Fire Tower was one of our snow shoe destinations this past winter - it was a great day and even though we couldn't climb the tower it was an excellant destination. On a clear day you can see across the Black River Valley from up there. If you are interested in the project visit:
You will find contact information and photos of the fall work detail. I encourage folks to take the hike - of course you are heading up on the way there but the reward for the climb is it's all down hill on the way home. Great little spot to head for a picnic!
Oh - and if you haven't visited the community photo page yet folks are starting to contribute - a lot of really great shots!!!!! I still need to get my winter photos all posted!
UPDATE - APA Voted to keep towers! Yeah!
