Albert Mountain

I hiked up to the fire tower on Albert Mountain (5250') with Wyatt and Jack this afternoon. It's a fun scramble to the top, and is known as the steepest 1/4 mile climb on the Appalachian Trail inside the Nantahalas.
The tower's cabin is locked at the trap door, but the stairs are readily accessible to provide a beautiful 360 degree panorama.
