Stanton Arendts reported his adventures climbing the Kensett Water Tower and we now have photo documentation as to the difficulty of that climb, as submitted by Ruby Flaaten.
Wisely, Ruby did not choose to make the climb herself, and in fact took this shot from the safety of some distance. If you look closely you can see the diagonal wires that Stan negotiated on occasions when he was looking for a greater thrill in the climb. And you wonder, "What the heck was he thinking?"
The photo should open in a new window if you double-click it, thus creating a larger image for better viewing and a higher level of appreciation of the skills of a teen growing up in Kensett, IA.
