Mot sure that's a good idea today or any day. I don't know much about witches, although years ago one coworker claimed to be one, but it would likely be traumatic for the game. Might look good on some folks however.

The whole Wiccan thing will have to get along without me.

If you decide to hike today don't forget a trip report.

Never tried hiking that way, but back in the '60's, my new bride and I took on a forest lookout job for our summer job/honeymoon between quarters at school.  The mountain was holy to the Couer d' Alene tribe; they used to strip their adolescent boys and send 'em up to the peak, naked, to have a name dream.  The boy would get his adult name, however long it took, then build a pile of rocks that was the boy forever, and a man went down the mountain to take his new place in the tribe.  The wind in the rocks (the mountain was called "Baldy") around the tower sounded pretty eery at night, like all those starving, thirsty, scared kids were wailing at their fate.  I was stirred to commune with them, so I left the tower one night, stripped, and sat out on a rock to engage the mountain, cheek to cheek, as it were.  Got colder'n the dickens, didn't build a rockpile, got dressed and went back to the warm lookout and warmer bed.  Don't think it changed me much--but then I never was much for hallucinations.  Haven't been naked in the wild ever since!

Good story. Probably better to be windy than frosty

I subscribed to the Lookout Network Quarterly last year, just to get in touch with my roots.  I looked for a firefinder to make a coffee table outta for years; finally found one for less than 2 grand, but Momma said we didn't have room for one anymore, so I passed.  I've been sittin' around here, quarantined fer covid, and wondering if I should buy a whole tower, and set it up in my yard--it'd give me a heckuvva lot better view of the mountain (Mt. Rainier) that's 24 miles away--from my living room elevation, I can only see about the top mile and a quarter becuz of the foothill ridge that stands between us.  There's an 80-footer fer sale in the Quarterly that was took down in '73, just 13K plus shipping.  Thing is, I'm not sure how many 80-foot towers I'm gonna climb once this Omicron lets go of me.  Our tower on Baldy was built on a cinder-block cube that held radio repeaters and a frig--no trees to block the view, and a breeze to climb.
