Since I moved to the area as a child I heard about climbing Mount Beacon. It was something it seemed everyone in the area had done at one point in their life. All I heard about was how beautiful the views were, the fire that burned and left the trolley and the casino abandon. Everyone left out exactly what it was like to get to the top of this mountain. So I set out to climb this Mountain so I too could say, "ohh yes, I did that."
