Yup that's the place! (never heard of the Towanda name) I know there's at least one other spot you can snag skyline pics in Woburn but haven't been and I think it's just a poorer version of the Horn Pond view.Where in Woburn? Mt Towanda? (aka Horn Pond Mountain)
Nice. I believe Towanda is an old name for it, and might be its actual formal name. It was home to a ski area into the 1970s, and the remnants are still visible, along with the ruins of the old Woburn Reservoir. There is or was a social club called the Towanda Club in in Woburn, so I assume that has something to do with the name, though I'm not sure which was named for which. Two years ago yesterday I seriously injured both knees in a trip and fall accident, and after a week at BMC, I ended up doing another week plus of physical rehabilitation at the New England Rehab at the foot of the mountain. My room there had a view of the Edison lines and up the north slope, so I vowed that when I was able to, I would climb it. I originally intended to climb it in the spring of 2020, but the pandemic delayed that, and I ended up climbing it along with my 79 year old father a year from the date I was admitted to the rehab as sort of a closure on the event. The delay worked in my favor because my knees were in much better shape by September than they were in April or May, when I originally wanted to climb it.Yup that's the place!

Actually, maybe I'll check out that second view sometime soon. It's here:
