then up to Cape Mountain for the 2 mile hike up to the summit where there are historical markers from an old fire lookout there in the 30’s. There was an old wheel left over from the garage that was there along with other signs showing photos of what it used to look like up there. Much had grown back on the summit in the 70 years since. We were afforded some nice views down towards Florence and the Dunes below from the 1500 foot summit meadow. We saw a few Rough Skinned Newts on the trail and a plenty of horse tracks.
