Radio Tower Photos

My brothers and I recently got permission to climb a radio tower.  We have climbed it 3 times in the past couple weeks and here are some of the photos I took.

Wes and I were the 1st to climb the radio tower.  This is a photo of Wes standing underneath the tower, right before we climbed it.
The radio tower was built during the Cold War, it is very old and not active anymore. 
The tower is only 10 minutes south Bowling Green, OH.





 The tower is 284 feet tall and has an amazing view!
It takes around 15 minutes to climb the the ladder to the top of the tower.
It is a long way up and can be very exhausting.
 I took this photo from the top of the tower, our cars look like little toy cars.

The view is amazing and to the east of the tower is an a really cool old barn. 
I have driven by this old barn before but never noticed it.
If you look closely you can see the Bowling Green wind mills on the horizon.

The 2nd time Wes and I climbed it Josh came along and we brought some golf balls and a driver.


It was 8:00am in the morning and we were driving golf balls off of a 284 ft tower....it was awesome!





Wes, Dex, and I....Mitch is afraid of heights.

My brother Dexter sitting on the edge of the tower....my mom will not like this photo.



 





After climbing the tower Wes and I went over to the old barn we saw.










Thanks for viewing!

All of you are much braver than I, I could never climb something like that. The climb was well worth it looking at your shots, loved them all.
