Ambrose Clark Tower

Shorty Event No. 86

May 3,2017

10 members and 1 guest attended

It was another day just like any other of late…drizzle,light rain, cool and

breezy. There was an air of optimism as a dozen Alpiners started out on

the main trail up to the Irish Tower. A special feature of the trail system is

its website like loops,so once we reached a split in the trail we took the path

less traveled and did several interconnecting trails until we decided it was time

to see the tower itself,after all it was our destination. It is always special to me

to see the quarried stone tower. It is surrounded now with a high iron fence

because vandals at one time stole the stain glassed windows.It is nonetheless

quite beautiful. The large markers for Kellsboro Jack and Buttons are also there

in the same area where Ambrose Clark is interred.Photos were taken and then we

meandered down the hill on several more trails to our cars and lunch at Council

Rock Brewery. All this with little or no rain.!!!!!!!! A great day with friends
