The lookout was out, so we had to wander around on our own. This is a very scenic lookout.

Found it.

Spotted this while locating a cache up here. Great View.
The Lookout was locked up so didn't get a chance to talk with anyone. There was still snow on the ground and the wind was hollowing.

great spot. Fire lookout had just spotted a lightning strike fifteen minutes before we arrived. Important work!

What a view. End of the season, so nobody home.
