      I live in the area and have been to the summit several times. When I first moved here, about 12 years ago, there was little brush on top of the mountain and you could look down and see many plant fossils on the ground. The last time, I was up, there were few to be seen. I have seen wild turkey on the summit also. Earlier today, I was at parked just past the radar station and saw a flock of hummingbirds in the weeds by the road. I say weeds, but you might say tall flowery stuff. They were swooping and chasing each other. I watched for about 20 minutes. I know there were at least 10 individual birds and may have been more. It was a treat. If you continue past the short road that goes to the summit and bear left you will come to the apple orchard. What great views. A 4-wheel drive is advised, especially if it is muddy as it was today. Not for the faint hearted. Enjoy!
