Lone Mountain Fire Lookout - 201010LJW

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Pack hoses carried 19 tons of sand, grave, concert and steel up Lone Mountain for the construction of this fire lookout in May 1937. It was built in 12 days by the Indian Emergency Conservation workers under the direction of R. E. Voorhies. The tower has not been maintained since the 1960’s. It may appear in good condition, but looks can be deceiving. It was scraped a few years after this photo. (The clouds were beautiful as a backdrop, but my camera did not have the memory card, so I hike back through brush and forest on a "steep slope" to get one from my truck; the clouds had changed greatly by the time I got back.)
