 The list...final round!?
Well, it looks like we have reached the last 11 peaks up for voting on the list! This round finishes off Vermont, does all we have for Mass and takes into account 3 late additions. So lets see where this last round takes us!

White Rocks Cliff
White Rock Mountain
Worcester Range

Mass
------------
Buck Hill (Blue Hills)
Greylock
Holyoke
Mt Tom/Goat Pasture Peak (ridge traverse)
Wachusett

Late additions:
Carter Bow
Magalloway
Chase (in Maine)

I will see if I can get Jim to pop on here and post pictures of the views for Holyoke and the Tom/Goat Pasture ridge. Greylock I assume we are all pretty familiar with (except Joe who refuses to go out there and so he is a pretty predictable "no" vote for it. :lol: )

Wachusett I liked the views, including glimpses of the Boston skyline. I am not sure how familiar folks are with it so I don't know if I need to go looking for photos of it?

Chase I saw Joe's picture, and looks good enough for me.

Carter Bow is that rocky bump heading to Carter Dome on the Rainbow trail that I nicknamed. In case we need a refresher:

And lastly, I assume most are familiar with the view from Magalloway. This is another tower-only view peak to which I am torn. The views are quite unique since there are no other laces to get 360 degree views of the North Country/Pittsburgh.

Magalloway has cliff views as well:

Good call on "Carter Bow", definitely a gem.

I can go for almost all these, but would love to see something from WAAAAAAAAAAAAA-Wa-Wa-Chusett. It seems like it would be Monadnockesque from it's location, but I've never been.

Yes Wachusett may be a tough sell because while it does have, from what I remember, views in all directions, it is mostly of flatness because of it's location. But you do get looks at Monadnock:

Boston:

And of course the Wapack Range, and I believe the Quabbin.

You better add Mt Chase to the ME peaks. :evil: 8)

And definitely Rainbow Ridge or whatever you prefer to call it. Easily a destination in itself.

I'll just vote yes for all. Even though the Mass. does not excite me at all. :P

I'll say yes for Magalloway. It's not my favorite but it definitely has views, and I like that it's up in a different area.

Despite my self imposed rule about views and towers, at this point I don't delude myself that voting no for Magalloway is going to make much difference. So I am going to vote straight up yes on all.

If Pawtuckaway didn't make it I can't pull the trigger on Wachussett. The rest I vote yes for.

OK, probably safe to say we can wrap this up. As I see it there was only one nay vote, for Wachusett, but that said everything gets the thumb up. So it is time for the big unveiling.....

Thank you.

I actually was a bit confused. Didn't know how to introduce myself around here and so decided to simply hop in for the ride and make a post :)
