Is it your job to climb up this tower? Bet it offers a great view.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Whoa, that's quite a climb up! But that's an important piece of equipment in the forest. Very nice photo, such beautiful skies as the backdrop to this tower, Dot.

Lori said...

I'd love to do the wheels blog...but I've got to get my life slowed down first.

Have you climbed that tower?? I just don't know if I could do it! But it makes a fantastic photograph!

Craver Vii said...

Good grief; where's the elevator?!

Sheila said...

Great photo Dot.
I once climbed half way up one of these and then froze..!
I had to be rescued, how embarrassing..!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh my gosh i don't think i would like to climb that one bit, that is way too high for me. Great shot

Quiet Paths said...

This is grand! What a great shot up and the sky is lovely. My brother used to be on a fire tower in the 60's but I don't think his tower had that many steps!

fishing guy said...

Dot: That is impressive tower. It surely reaches high into the Sky.

Carletta said...

Love these Dot!
I haven't seen a fire tower in years!

napaboaniya said...

The view up there must be real great. But climbing up there would probably cause my legs to turn jello :P
Love the shots :)
Have a good weekend!!

david mcmahon said...

Love the second shot.

Could you give me the details on the Wheels theme if/ when you have time?

If occasional (rather than regular) contributions are accepted, I could help out ....

Sioux said...

Love your fire tower. There's one in Tennessee I told my husband that the only way he get me up there was to take my ashes...don't have a head for heights!

Dottie said...

I think I'd be too scared to climb that tower! Great photo though.

SandyCarlson said...

I love what you have here, Dot! As one who can't handle heights, I especially appreciate those who can climb those towers!

mharia said...

oh wow ... that is high!
beautiful shots!

Rambling Round said...

Just wondering what part of Alabama the fire tower is located. Nice shot.

Small City Scenes said...

Great shot. A friend and I spent part of a summer at a fire tower in Oregon. We were up in the mountains and could see all the way to the ocean. that was 6-7 years ago and I would do it again if I had the chance. MB

Picturing of Life said...

quintarantino said...

Now that is a huge watch tower; I bet if you go up there you could bring us some fantasctic landscapes views.
Well, on second thought, no need for that ... you always bring us great photos!

The Texican said...

Dot, you are keeping me in a constant state of Nostalgia. I remember doing a surveillance on a drug dealer's house from one of those in East Texas. Scary climb to the top in a pair of leather soled shoes. :)

pts said...

beautiful!

Kerri said...

Lovely shots Dot! I would HATE to walk up all of those steps!

I have been visiting your Picture This blog. Great photos there!!

Andrea said...

I bet the people who have to climb that fire tower are in great shape. I imagine it is beautiful looking from the very top. Great shot of the steps going up. You should have climbed to the top and took a picture of the steps going down. ;)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

My husband and I climbed a fire tower on our first date. Ha! I was afraid to climb back down! It's a wonder we ever had a second date. LOL

Anne-Berit said...

Oh,that was high up to the top.Must be quite a view from up there!

mrsnesbitt said...

It is heart-warming fact to read that I am not alone in my fear of heights! LOL!

Great blue sky Dot! Very grey here. (just for a change!)

Indrani said...

Interesting. I could NEVER climb those stairs. My legs would be shaking like a leaf.

eyestothesky said...

ga.farmgirl said...

I would love to climb that! I love heights. When I was a child , I lived in trees. When I told my huband last week I climbed a tree to take a picture, he nearly had a heart attack. I have to admit, it wasn't as easy as it use to be 5 decades ago.lol...
Great photos.

Anemone said...

And you talk about WATCH !!!!

Nice weekend wiches to you, from Norway.

Mike said...

Nice blue sky Dot!

happyone said...

Climbing all those steps would be a good workout. :-)

Misty Dawn said...

Great composition for unique shots here! I am not afraid of heights, so I would definitely climb this town and take a photo of the world below :-)

Hope to see your critter photo for Camera-Critters this weekend.

Ex-Shammickite said...

That's a long way up. I think I might suffer from vertigo if I attempted that climb.

my little corner said...

great sot of the fire tower (Dot)

gardenpath said...

When I was young, I used to climb fire towers, but no more! That is a tall one. Good shot.
