Last year, I took a single photo at the top of Mt Beacon with my camera phone of the fire tower. This year, I decided to lug all my gear up and take plenty of shots to make up for it. With the threat of rainy weather possible, the sky looked pretty interesting at times.
Believe it or not, the hardest thing about the hike wasn’t the incline this time around, but dealing with the hordes of black flies chewing us up. Personally, I have about 20 bites on my arms, and that was with bug spray. Looks like I’ll be spraying stronger stuff on my clothes for my next trips. Anyways, I hope you like the photos… there’s a lot of them!
