KUOW- Hike Dome Peak

Updated 2-21-2012
Just east of Enumclaw this road walk just has patchy snow and you can get views of Mt. Rainier. Tuesday and Wednesday will bring heavy rain to the mountains and breezy so no views of Mt. Rainier. However Thursday just slight chance of a few showers and might offer some views. Thursday is the driest day over the next several days

I have been wondering about that structure for a few years. I've heard it's some kind of microwave communications station. I have never seen any comms station that was perfectly spherical though. I could understand a half sphere but what could ever need to transmit or receive in the direction of the ground?
