This was the night cap for Cup, Blanco and myself. There is a nice little spot to camp at the TH and McKittrick and Blue were next on the list, so our day two destination became our day one destination. The register at the Blue lookout, also the highest point in the Blue Range, was full of scathing reviews of the summit and trail.

I am just not sure who hikes that trail and expects something else, furthermore, I am not sure how someone who had such a miserable time on the trail would continue the hike the entire length, just to write how horrible the view was, and how bad the trail was. Look it is what it is, the tower is located in a severely burned area. There is a huge dead tree blocking access to the trail from the TH, there is a giant yellow sign that says the trail is destroyed and to use at your own risk, so how did it come as a shock to these people when the trail was less than ideal? My favorite message, "trail full of dead trees, can't find benchmark, can't climb tower, utter disappointment."

Speaking of tower, it can be climbed ;)
