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