Climbing The Tower at Itasca by Christopher

We were in Itasca State Park last weekend and climbed the fire tower. There were 209 steps that we counted as Gabriella, Elliot, Dad, Justin, MJ, and myself climbed them, when we reached the top we discovered we were high above the trees and the winds were blowing madly...
I thought my hat was going to blow away so I grasped it tightly! The view was spectacular! The trees were changing colors and you could see trees and trees and more trees for miles, with lakes scattered in the forest too.
MJ and I are afraid of heights, so none of us stayed at the top for long. Going down was easier than up, and I was the first one down.
