Wanting to learn a little more about this led me to this cool page
Yes, Ron has put a TON of work into that site and it's a really great resource for lookout history and photos!

I figured that if anyone would recognize that lookout, it would be you, justpeachy Challenge accepted! ;) I think I figured out what lookout that was: Indian Mountain. The rocks in the foreground of your photo, Aimless, look like the rocks in the photo on this page . http://www.firelookout.com/or/i...

Very cool! Thanks for sharing!
A different lookout from the same trip
Hmmm, I wonder which one this is. Based on the trip itinerary it would make sense for it to be Lost Lake Butte, but that spot had a tower, not a ground cabin.

Re: Grateful for this organization!

Wow, Switzerland! Oregon's scenery is beautiful but must be a big change from the Swiss Alps.

Glad you found the Field Guide helpful, and thanks for your donation! The FG is the result of thousands of hours of volunteer work. :D

Re: Hi, All!

Welcome! I hope you'll post about your hikes here. :)

Yes we have bears but it's VERY rare to see them. For all the years I've hiked in Oregon I've never seen a bear while hiking. You're far more likely to be accosted by the cute and persistent gray jays and ground squirrels. ;)

Re: interpretive signs for Iron Mountain Trail #3389

More often than not when I see numbered posts along a trail, I don't see an accompanying brochure at the trailhead. My guess is that these things get set up with grant funding or something, years pass, staff moves on, money is tight, priorities shift, and the posts remain standing but the brochure d...

Re: Has anyone seen Camp Blossom?

That was known as the Timberline Cabin and it was built at Camp Blossom in 1916. It was primarily used by skiers and climbers. According to this book the cabin was "about one-half mile west of Timberline Lodge in an area near current ski runs." That makes sense because when you hike the Timberline T...
