Mt. Roosevelt Firetower

Mt. Roosevelt Firetower

This goes back to the days when fire departments operated by putting a tower on top of the tallest mountain, and someone at the top looked to see where the fire was coming from. Mt. Roosevelt is the tallest mountain near Rockwood, TN along the western edge of Roane County.

I'd heard you weren't supposed to go up there, but the lock on the fence was cut open and I thought I could get a great view up there. As I started the climb, I tried to take another step and the step wasn't there - so I came down.
