The tower is in Mohican State Park. I've read that since 2005 the tower is open to go up and in, but the top was closed and locked that day. We made it to the top and stayed on the stairs for the view. Here is some information

The last url has a photo of the structure. The link at the top right where it lists all towers in Ohio is broke hopefully they will fix that.

I've climbed up quite a few towers and only been in one in my life... pretty sparce up there. Usually a chair, a compas kind of dial range finder thing and a radio or twisted pair dedicated phone hand set. Oh yea did I mention a huge hole in the floor you do not want to forget about, the one you climbed up in.

Remember the ranger on the Red Green show? That is what happens to people who stay up there too long.

I thought there was a tower in Cuyahoga National Park. But I do not know if you can get on the steps due to a fense. I thought Dorothy shot an IR picture of it one trip.

Is anyone intrested in getting together for lunch in Peninsula the first week of Jan 2010 (next week).

A few winters ago John and I got together to for lunch in the middle of winter and I'd like to do it again and invite anyone else in the area to come along.

Works for me. I'll tell Peter.

If you don't mind a wiggly (and occasionally loud) 11 month old, I can maybe do a day trip.

I'll be there on the 5th, at noon.

Peter has offered to bring a few prints to show that he has collected. Since a dark restaurant may not be the safest place to show these, I would like to invite all who come to continue after lunch at our house for Peter’s show & tell. I am looking forward to seeing what he has found.

As with all our gatherings this invitation is open to Apug members (even wiggly ones) close enough to meet us for noon lunch, Wednesday, January 5, 2011, at Fisher restaurant in Peninsula, OH USA

P.S. Bethe, the girls will be happy to dribble, errr, baby sit Nate.

That sounds like a great idea.

One might get the impression that you're averse to trying new toning techniques, John. Nate could bring his jars of carrots and beets. (Now Peter's gonna give me an enhanced pat-down at the door to make sure I'm not carrying...)

It will be a last minute decision, but I may be able to make it as well.

Hmmm, beets might be interesting. How would we look with purple/red hair, though?

side note/question - a lot of plants make good dyestuffs (my mom dyes a lot); how much experimentation has happened with fruits, veggies, and photos?

Not an expert, but it's been done. I think the problems with these kinds of dyes is that they are not proportional to the image density, and many fade easily. There are tea toned prints here on APUG. I think Tim Rudman's toning book covers this area, but I haven't seen or read it. Just checked, and it looks like the recent reprint has dropped the price of the earlier edition to something very reasonable. It was going for astronomical prices before the reprint. Probably time to order. The new edition is £25 from Rudman's web site. http://www.timrudman.com/content/toning-book-reprint

They are called anthotypes (http://www.alternativephotography.com/wp/processes/anthotypes/anthotype-process).

Bethe,

I have three (perhaps all) of Tim's books if you or any of our guests would like to look through them when you are here. Unfortunately, my interest waned when I had to leave his workshop or pass out on the floor, Toronto, first Apug convention. Between allergies and color blindness lith didn't seem to be a productive path for me. I was really disappointed because Tim is a super person and instructor.

Can't hear you Nick. Perhaps if you came closer to the table Wednesday we could better enjoy your thoughts.
