Hickory Ridge Fire Tower in Hoosier National Forest
110 feet tall - 309 steps to the top
We drove in from Ohio today - checked out the general area, passed a couple of the cemeteries on tomorrows checklist and made a trial run up the fire tower. I admit about two thirds of the way up I was a bit skeptical but Jen made me keep climbing and it was definitely worth it despite the tower swaying in the breeze. We relaxed the rest of the evening at The Rawhide Ranch - fire and a couple Fat Tire's to get us ready for tomorrow's great adventure.
