I've been wondering about the fire hydrant

I'd heard that the ladder was up there and that they had carried the fire hydrant up there too. Amazing feat. I'm not sure many people know the story of Mailbox peak but this is yet another fun chapter. 4stars for getting this pic one day and posting it the next. A fun pic.

Re: I've been wondering about the fire hydrant

Mailbox peak, just about 30+ plus miles outside of Seattle has an interesting history. Its name is based on the fact that someone lugged a mailbox and planted it on the summit of this peak many years ago. Since then, the mailbox has been removed and replaced more than once. Recently though, a group of firefighters lugged a big ladder and a very heavy fire hydrant all the way to the top and placed them there. Check out the page on Mailbox Peak for the whole concept and stories. Fun in the mountains 4 sure.
