Old forest fire lookout site
In the 1940’s a forest fire lookout 8X8’ cabin, Adirondack shelter stood on a 15 foot stump. It is not know how long the lookout was used for before it was abandoned. I tried to find the stump that the tower stood on but the top of the ridge was used for a rock pit and now is just a hole in the ground.
