A friend's buddy got me a special walkthru of the tower in the Southwest Museum last weekend. Strictly off limits to the public.
I took a couple pics but not too many as I didn't want to be that guy. Just wanted to enjoy it and try to imagine the past. When you could look out the tower's windows and see nothing but hills and some small shacks. No freeway. Flowing Arroyo. And wonderful sunrises over Montecito Heights.
Only wished I could have spent the whole night in the tower. Beautiful.
