Default One last trip of the season.........

I got to haul radio tech's up to one of the transmitter sites in the Methow. Great company, views and enough snow to make it fun!

Looking forward to the same trip in the middle of the winter to make it more exciting.

Old tower, completely rusted out at the bottom. I suspect it was only held up by the 3 or 4 guy lines. The techs moved the transmitter unit to another tower and will replace the one that fell this summer.
