Once there were over 8,000 fire lookouts dotting mountaintops across the United States. Today there are only a few hundred still in operation. I've visited ten in California including seven on the Sequoia National Forest (Needles, Jordan Peak, Mule Peak, Tobias Peak, Baker Point, Bald Mountain, and Buck Rock), two on the San Bernardino NF (Keller Peak, Strawberry Peak), and one in Marin County (Mt. Tamalpais). I also visited two lookouts in Wyoming (Kennaday Peak and Spruce Mountain). Please feel free to add photos of fire lookouts you have seen.
