cougar mountain

it reminds me of where they beheaded people...

the concrete platforms where once an antenna tower was mounted
concrete blanketed in moss

so today we hiked a variety of trails at cougar mt wilderness area .
it is not only a great place for exploration but has a cold war history as a former home to Nike Missiles.
a great walk in the woods some real ass burning hills and then to try and make little concrete pads look interesting in a photograph?

see wiki for detailed info.
