A view from above

In preparation for the christmas tree season, the burgess clan was in favor of decorating the new windmill tower that graces the landscape at the burgess tree farm. There was much discussion about how to decorate this new landmark but in the end we decided good old christmas lights were the way to go. And so as to not waste any precious power, we invested in LED lights for the tower. My brother-in law, Ryan, climbed the tower to fasten the lights. The lights go up about 60 feet on the 100ft tower but Ryan couldn't resist going a little higher (~80 ft) to enjoy the view and get some pics. He was, of course, wearing a harness and had redundant tie-offs for safety purposes.
