Bays Mountain

Today my family and I hiked to the fire tower on Bays Mountain. This was a short 4.7 mile hike around the lake. This time I actually climbed the fire tower; it was just as rickety as all the others I’ve seen while hiking in the area. Bays Mountain is in the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians. This is most apparent when looking at the parallel ridges and the associated valleys.
