10 - The Last Standing Tower
11:15 am
810 ft <-- -->

Finally, after walking through one last draw—that one that could break your spirit—you see the last standing tower off in the distance. It's a beautiful site, especially now that you know the worse part of the hike to the Ore Terminal is behind you (well, you know that because I told. I didn't know that when I first did the hike.) Of course, you'll have to come back this way on the return trip….

This is a really cool place and may be my favorite—even more than the terminal itself—because of the next picture…
