fire lookout views.

Park Butte Lookout, Mount Baker National Forest 

7.5 miles RT.
2200 ft elevation gain.
Unobstructed panoramic views.

This was our first fire lookout!

This place is also first come first serve for overnight stays. We thought it would already be taken, but when we arrived, nobody was staying there!! 😭 We wish we had our backpacks with us. Next time we visit a fire lookout, we plan to bring a small backpack of necessities just in case we can stay!

Took some snapshots inside the fire lookout. So many filled guest books, old maps, and drawings from people who have been there before.

About half-way through the hike, there’s a spot where you can get some really neat reflection shots.

On our way home.

 

Although I deeply love oceans, deserts, and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty.

Below are some photos from one of our favorite visits up there. 😊
