Remote fire tower peak with no tower.

If anyone is interested in peaks that once had a tower, which has been removed, my wife and I once visited a rather obscure one. We thought the tower would still be there but it was long gone. In Croghan Township in Lewis County (In or very near Watson's East Triangle Wild Forest) there is a peak named Bald Mountain. My maps indicated the presence of a tower. The road leading up to its base is a very good gravel road but there is no trail. We did see some blazes but the area was a maze of old logging roads overgrown with blackberry brambles. It was essentially a bushwhack. Just below the summit we encountered a pile of garbage (an archaeologist's cornucopia maybe?) Here is a link to a map that shows the peak.
The best, the most successful adventurer, is the one having the most fun.
