Dunn's Doty Lookout Cache
We're a bit dotty about lookout caches. Logbear
really has a fascination with forest fire lookouts and my
interested lies in geocaching. Of course, we've both loved the
views. We finished the
Washington Forest Fire Lookout Challenge together, but we still
continue to seek new lookout caches to visit or place. This is one
of those places. Coincidentally, it expresses our 'Doty-ness' in

Doty Lookout, at an elevation of nearly 2100', was a Washington
Division of Forestry (DNR since 1957) lookout constructed in 1942.
It consisted of a 28' pole tower cab(in?) and a house. It was
destroyed in 1966. Today, all that remains are remnants that have
been pushed into the woods. But the view . . . oh, the view! We
could see Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, and (we
think) Mt. Baker either from the top, or on the walk up.

- Bring your camera. We didn't have an absolutely clear day, but
the views were still stunning. IMHO, the end of the day may be
