“Wind Changes Everything” Wind-shift on the Lava Fire, as seen from the East Butte Fire Lookout. Deschutes National Forest, Oregon August 1, 2012 #fire #wildlandfire #lavafire #windshifts #danger #oregon #centraloregon #deschutesnationalforest #fortrockvalley #christmasvalleyoregon #blmlands #eastbuttelookout #firelookout
Three fingers lookout, on a first come first serve basis is one of the harder lookouts to reach. It will require good scrambling technique and most likely an ice axe, while climbing ladders during the final stretch. It’s all worth it though, don’t worry. . . . 📷: @my.pnw . . . #washington #washingtonfirelookout #washingtonlookout #washingtonexplored #explorewashington #pnw #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #washingtonoutside #exploremore #optoutside #outdoorproject #threefingerslookout #threefingersfirelookout #threefingers #firelookout

I wish I could make a living from scrapbooking, gives me such peace and pleasure. I had made a lot of tiny print tests for larger photos and was about to toss them in the recycling bin, when I found a box of old forgotten scrap paper and put 2 and 2 together... So here is the green batch with some images from the Smokies. #NorthCarolina #nchiking #visitnc #visitasheville #hikenc #828isgreat #828 #romanticasheville #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #greatsmokies #greatsmokymountains #gsmnp #appalachianrange #appalachias #mtsterling #mountsterling #winter #firelookout #winterimpression #winterhike #ashevillephotographer #ashevillehiking #foggy #fog #foggypath #foggyforest #scrapbooking #photocards #visitthesmokies #handmade
There are a number of fire lookouts that can’t be booked online, and are “first come first serve.” This means you need to be prepared to sleep somewhere else if you are not the first ones to the lookout! Or have enough time to hike back to the trailhead. Location: granite mountain fire lookout. . . . 📷: @abbweipnw . . . #washington #washingtonfirelookout #washingtonlookout #washingtonexplored #explorewashington #pnw #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #washingtonoutside #exploremore #optoutside #outdoorproject #granitemountain #firelookout #firelookouttower #granitemountainlookout #granitemountainfirelookout
2ish mile snowshoe, 2700 ft of elevation gain, wolf tracks, fire lookout views, snacks & friends= a pretty ok day
It's been an indoor month due to sickness so #tbt to warmer times when Henry and I were apparently auditioning to be in a Creed music video. Can't wait for that thaw. #bringonspring
The light from the stars you are seeing can sometimes be billions of years old, still traveling through the cosmos long after the Star has died. When you think about it, when we look up, we are staring at ghosts in the night sky. . . . 📷: @rachelebarkerphoto . . . #washington #washingtonfirelookout #washingtonlookout #washingtonexplored #explorewashington #pnw #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #washingtonoutside #exploremore #optoutside #outdoorproject #redtoplookout #redtopfirelookout #redtopfiretower #firelookout #lookout
Windy joe snowshoe with the love of my life @stellacarmen93 #windyjoe #snowshoe #firelookout
I’ve been hiking and backpacking in Southern California for over five years and I have never been up around the San Jacinto area. Today Aayla and I did the Tahquitz Peak loop. What an amazing hike! - #tahquitzpeak #sanjacintowilderness #wilderness #adventure #hike #hiking #travel #lookout #firelookout #outside #snow #winter #peak #socal #california #mountains #goexplore #getoutside

Climbed some mountains with this gangster this past weekend! @therealtrmalko #tahoe #hiking #firelookout
Self care/self love is not selfish. I’ve spent a lot of my life trying to please other people. Go with the flow of what they wanted to do. Not anymore... if you need me... I’m hanging with my pups, working out, or taking a bath. I am on the road to self discovery and 100% independence. #goodvibesonly
Woke up early to enjoy every moment of this epic sunrise from Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout. The wind howled all night but we were kept warm by space heaters at our bedside. Getting this shot took braving the cold in single digits temperatures and 50 mph winds. After getting knocked over a few times I was able to take this photo and quick run back inside. . . . . #sunrise #earlyriser #epicview #firelookout #Colorado #CO #beautifulview #mountainslovers #mountainscape #Denver #mountainviews #coloradohiking #coloradogram #coloradomountains #outdoorliving #roomwithaview #sunshine

Our first family vacation with friends to Lake Tahoe. #laketahoe #squawvalley #firelookout
What an amazing weekend surprise. So lucky for the people in my life 💜🏔 #firelookout #mthoodwilderness #quiet #pacificnorthwest #optoutside #chorescanwait #mountainsarecalling
I wonder what it was like working and waking up in one of these by yourself for weeks at a time. I also wonder what my thoughts would be like with out social media and cell phones.
Surround yourself with people who add value to your life. Who challenge you to be greater than you were yesterday. Who sprinkle magic into your existence, as you do theirs. Life isn’t to be done alone. Find your tribe-and journey freely- and loyally together.
Warming our paws after a six mile skin to the Garnet Mountain fire lookout cabin. #cabin #backcountryskiing #goldenretriever
Going to start posting the books I'm reading on here, ones that fit with the agenda of this Insta. This is the first, a first hand account of what it is to be a fire lookout in New Mexico, completely alone in a cabin on stilts for 6 months of the year. What is interesting is the talk of fire as something of a keystone in that environment, and not as a merely destructive element. The book argues that a wilderness should be kept as close to its natural form, without the interference of humans. For example, in the Gila territory the book describes, fires were previously fought so that the land could act as pasture for grazing herds, yet this was detrimental to the ecology of the place. It shows how intensive farming can ruin a landscape and result in horrific natural disasters. 'Hundreds of thousands of head of livestock swarmed over southern New Mexico, up to the highest reaches of the Gila country. The consequences were shocking and immediate. In 1895, a great flood swept out of the Pinos Altos mountains and tore through what was then the heart of Silver City... ... By the middle of the twentieth century, much that was wrong with the Gila could be summed up in six words: too many livestock, too few fires. The forest had become a scenic pasturing ground for private ranchers, as indeed too much of it remains.' This, without doing it intentionally, links to George Monbiot's book 'Feral', and the concept of 'Rewilding'.
Grads are on their winter natural history trip and took a half day to snowshoe up to the fire lookout on Lookout Mountain. A celebratory picture with @peakedcuriosity , @bluemrb , @youknowitsnater , @elizabeth_dee9 , Gina R. And Zoe W. was needed! Onward to learn about snow science, avalanche danger and build snow shelters. 🎥: @peakedcuriosity
