The road up onto McFadden Peak is open for the time being this season...

I was on a road trip with my dad on Saturday working our way down from the Rim heading towards Roosevelt. The open gate easily caught our attention. We've both been wanting to go up there for some time now. We weren't about to let that opportunity pass us up.

A married couple is working the fire tower this season and allowing visitors during day. There camping in a travel trailer just below the summit. Nice couple. This is there first time working a fire tower. The guy was real friendly. He shared some very colorful war stories from this years monsoon season up there. Crazy stuff. Working a fire tower is not for the faint of heart. There enjoying there experience overall, however I believe the relentless violent storms have been taking its toll on them. We hung out on the summit for about hour watching big storms circle from all directions. It was a great summit experience. If you've been wanting to come up here but have been putting it off due to the closed gate, now is the time to go. They'll let you climb the tower unless lightning is in the close vicinity. It was marginal while we were up there. We got lucky. Only took one photo. The light was really clean on McFadden Horse Mountain with a sweet dark background monsoon against the far distant Sombrero Peak about eleven miles southeast.
