Poke-O-Moonshine - The Blue Trail

I finally made it to the summit of Poke-O-Moonshine. The attempt in May got me as far as the cabin ruins. This time we took the new blue trail. Details about this alternate trail are here:
The new trial is longer but less steep and rocky. It joins up with the original red trail at the cabin ruins.

The first picture is of Damon near the top of the fire tower located at the summit. The second picture is of the fire-tower itself. And finally is a shot of me (way down at the bottom of the photo) on the summit taken by Damon from his spot up in the fire-tower.

We started on the trail at 8:15am. We made it to the top around 10:00am, and made it back down to the trail-head by 10:55am. So we made the round-trip in under 3 hours.
The day was cloudy and we had a very light sprinkle of rain for about 5 minutes early on, but it was dry the rest of the time and in the upper 60s.
