I took these photos from the Pillsbury Mountain fire tower, bordering the West Canada Lake Wilderness. On my way up I noticed the mountain has suffered tremendous blow down from recent years. Tropical Storms Irene and Sandy probably contributed to these recent changes. It's making the trail confusing. One group even wondered off a bit, because the trail was block. I kept hearing that the high peaks received several feet of snow, so I took a look from the fire tower. The high peaks were all snow capped. In the first photo shows snow at the summit of Pillsbury Mountain. The Second photo shows the Great Range with Marcy on the far left horizon. The closer Mountain on the far left is Snowy Mountain. The third photo shows Algonquin in the horizon. The ridge on the left and foreground has an interesting feature to it. There is a c-47 crash site there. The mountain is called Blue Ridge, one of the 100 highest bushwacks.
