Welcome back

Welcome back dgreaser. You got rid of your pages and some excellent highpoint photos on my pages. Are you going to resubmit those?

Re: Welcome back

Thanks! slowly, slowly slowly but yes, most stuff anyway. I've re-scaled all of my photos to unusable (to steal!) size since I found someone had been selling some of them. This time I won't worry and if I bug out again I'll just have someone adopt my pages instead.

That's rough

I have used other people's photos from summitpost, but I always ask their permission and give them 100% credit. Only a real loser would steal someone's photo and pass it off as their own.

Camping prohibited

The entry under "Camping and Red Tape" is inaccurate/incomplete. Camping is not allowed in the tower during any season. The FS got tired of having to replace the door because of repeated break-ins so a crawl-through space on the door was installed for emergencies only.

Re: Camping prohibited

Where is this information publicly available? It is not posted at the trailhead or on the tower. (I believe you, but how is anyone to know?) I know of several people that have bivyed there in mid-winter as a base camp for skiing, however, since it is very dark and cold inside, it seems like a terrible option compared to a sub-alpine snow cave!

Re: Camping prohibited

We just assumed people knew that camping wasn't allowed because the lookout is closed with a cable and lock each fall. You make a good point about public notification and we will be sure to post a "no camping" sign on the door this fall. I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider editing the site to eliminate the sentence about camping in the tower. Thanks! (I am the Stevensville District Ranger).
