Fire Tower Cat by Chrissy Mabee
2019 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #48
Sponsored by: Magliocca Stores, Inc. / McDonalds
Description: “Fire Tower Cat” was inspired by The Official Fire Tower Hiking Challenge. Overlook Mountain was the first tower I had ever came across as a happy accident. It was also the last tower climbed before finishing the hiking challenge with my mother before her passing in 2015. This fire tower has a lot of meaning to me. This cat will be painted with bright fall colors as the day I last hiked it.
