November 4: Mt. Cammerer

Fire tower, Appalachian Trail, Tennessee North Carolina border built in the 1930s, by hand. Marveling at the scope: the 7 mile trail from the last place a truck could fit, and then, what, young men carried the stones one at a time up Low Gap?

After my second visit, standing down in the nearby town like Millay, marking what must be mine. The mountain so high I can't see the fire tower but I know that it's there, with its Canada warblers and octagonal building set into a crag at the mountaintop.

It makes me happy that it's there waiting for my return.
