Restored Fire Lookout In Washington

Feb 13, 2017

Category: Living

Though it seems like humanity builds over everything once those things get old enough, there are still some pockets of this world that, to a degree, belong or have returned to nature. And it isn’t that people don’t or can’t go there. It’s just that those who choose to make the trip are also the type who respect the place enough to leave it as untouched as possible. Take this restored fire lookout in Mount Baker Washington, for example.

Deep in the woods of the northwestern state, this edifice once served as a station for fire-watchers to keep an eye on the surrounding land. With technology, it became obsolete and – as a result – fell into disrepair. That is, until some anonymous hikers decided to restore it. Now, it (and many other’s like it) serve as shelters for the use of any traveler brave enough to make the climb. Two such voyagers, Heather and Andrew Pogue, made the trek to this one, stayed the night, and documented the whole experience. And we are glad they did. We just ask that anyone else who wishes to make the same climb keeps these mountain oases in as good or better condition than that in which they found them.
