    Never ending story on these summits. They're lucky. I remember the day the gal died years ago in a Whiteout up there. With her husband from Boston being lost then tired from trying to find a way...

    Were always laughing at the hikers who go out of their way to find that parking spot near the trail head so they don't have to walk an extra few steps. And most of these are in youthful shape....

    Careful with September. They start closing stuff by mid September. Best to do first 2 weeks. You can do August just takes more work to find a place. Are you camping? or Motels?

    Can't believe the Cog would just up and tow someone that day without a permit. Certain someone on duty? perhaps. More baggage to the story? I bet. I know people and many cry " I'm innocent" but...

    They should come up with a give or take 5 ft either side of 4k's that can be left in. Grandfathered so to speak. Tecumseh is an enjoyable hike unlike some of the other 4k's. Who cares if it's 5 ft...
