DUNMORE, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia State Parks system is holding a drawing for the opportunity to be the first overnight guests of the newly refurbished Thorny Mountain Fire Tower.

The tower in Seneca State Forest soars 53 feet above the top of a 3,445-foot mountain and provides a panoramic view of much of Pocahontas County and the Greenbrier River Valley. After the Division of Forestry quit using the tower, state parks staff turned it into an out-of-the-way rustic retreat.

The winner of the contest and up to three guests will get a free night in the tower on June 20, which is West Virginia Day, or a later date. After that, the tower will be available to the public for rental.
