If you look carefully the tree and the left leg of the tower look a little odd too

Bet it's a great view!

Thanks to this thread, I found a tower near me!

Olson Tower in Monongahela National Forest in WV. Couldn't have asked for a better day.

On the way, I had to get out the camera... You have to love the West Virginia freeways to nowhere!



Nice cut.


Little self portrait action.


Headed up the tower. The distortion in these pics is from my 10.5mm lens and it's 180 degree field of view.


At the top. (can't get into the shack at the top)


High Anxiety anyone?


View north.


View west.


View south.

Well, here's one i used in the Upstate SC Tag-0-Rama.
Hobbysville tower, Spartanburg County, SC.
I didn't even try to see if it was climbable.
Probably not 1/2 mi from I-26 and can't be seen from there.

Me too. I've got photos of all 3 bikes at just about the same spot. Same for the covered bridge just down the hill from there.
