Up On Top

On top of Marble Mountain...8/04

Marble Mountain is one of our favorite places. There used to be a fire tower here, long gone, although remnants still remain. From here you can see 365 degrees into Canada, Washington, and Montana. We go here every year, usually have our picnic lunch on the highest point. We use our four wheelers to get as far as we can and then hike up to the top. Rock slabs, like those in the photo, cover the whole mountain and make for some fun and challenging hiking.

    There's a few mountains I've hiked in New York's Adirondack Mountains that have firetowers still on them, Toni. None were still in use by the time I was an adult but I can remember seeing Park Rangers in them when I was a little kid.

    What a sensational view - I can see why it's such a favourite place up there

    I have been to the top of a mountain in Montana that had a 360 degree view of states. But nothing like this. We fourwheeled all the way up that one.

    Thanks for sharing.
