|Guy on crane gets clear photo of Roanoke.|
The area is so overgrown that it is difficult at best to get a decent shot, unless you're the guy on the crane at the left. These men were working on the star today and took a minute to get a photo. I had to work my way around the trees to get what you see above.
I got a shot of McAfee's Knob from the lower observation deck, about 200 yards away from the star deck. Let me very strongly suggest to the city that it send a crew of men, a chain saw or two and a bucket truck to the deck and trim back the brush. That view is our very signature and should not be obstructed.

|This is the best shot I could get of Roanoke with a very long lens and it ain't much to write home about.|
