The Mt Hebo Air Force Station in 1967 as seen from the north. The access road going up to 3154 feet is shown from the bottom with trees on the downslope and grass on the upslope. The white radomes for the radars are from left to right the FPS-26A height finder, the FPS-24 search, and the partially hidden FPS-90 height finder. The road going towards the left of the photo terminates at the Ground-To-Air-Radio (GATR) site. The road going towards the right of the photo terminates at an old radio site and the Auto Hobby Shop.
Steve, I believe this view would be from the west--north would be to the left in the picture.
You are correct David. North to south is from left to right in the photo. From bottom to top in the photo would be west to east.
My dad was stationed there from 1979 to 1881. I recall running laps around the radar in the summer; wild strawberries, fishing in the lake and being 8 years old when Mt. St. Helens erupted. At 8 years of age, I was not following the news so I though Seattle had been nuked by the Russians. What a Sunday morning that was. We got lots of ash. Thanks for the pictures.
