Enjoying a much needed weekend. Happy adventuring 🏕
TGIF! So glad the week is over, now I’m ready to head out to this peak for a sleepover. If anyone is free tomorrow morning come and visit me! ☺️ #SlideMountain #firelookout
Since moving to San Francisco 3 years ago I became low key obsessed with Mount Tam and the lookout tower at the peak. Last night I got to spend the night there on fire lookout duty. What a magical sunrise and sunset. Definitely worth the wait :)
Another picture from Hidden Lake Lookout. This is definitely one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on, I loved getting to see these views at sunset, sunrise and under the stars. Can't wait to go back🌲🏞 • • • • • • • #hiddenlakelookout #firelookout #northcascdes #backpacking #hiking #hikes #hiker #hike #hikeday #hike365 #hikethepnw #pnw #pnwonderland #adventure #hikingadventure #explore #views #sunset #washington #lake #hikersofinstagram #womenwhohike
“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” —Oscar Wilde And what sweet punishment it is: the first colors of Dawn from a fire lookout.
Reporting for fire lookout duty! Proudly serving your southern San Bernardino National Forest and surrounding communities of Temecula and Hemet Valley. #redmountainfirelookout #firelookout

Hand hoch, wer hier gerne mal eine Nacht verbringen möchte! 🙋‍♀️😱😍 ---------- Solche Fire Lookouts gibt es in einigen Bundesstaaten der USA und vor allem auch hier im Pacific Northwest. Einfache Hütten hoch oben und exponiert auf Berggipfeln, die früher und teilweise auch heute noch dazu dien(t)en, Waldbrände möglichst früh zu entdecken. Und einige dieser Lookouts kann man sogar für Übernachtungen mieten! Wie genial ist das bitte? 🤤 ---------- An diesem hier bin ich leider nur vorbei gewandert, wäre aber am liebsten direkt eingezogen. Die 360-Grad-Rundumsicht war einfach nur gigantisch. 🙏🏔🌲

Few things beat sunrises and sunsets in the mountains. Now add to that an amazing group of friends to enjoy it with while celebrating taco Tuesday at a fire lookout? It really doesn’t get much better than that. I’m beyond grateful for all the amazing, loving, inspiring people I’m lucky enough to call friends and with whom I get to share breathtaking moments and memories like this. 💜
Slept above the clouds last night. #baker #firelookout
This is what a smoke looks like from tower. Reno fire. #firelookout #babbittlookout
After running all over this place this wasn't a bad spot to lay our heads for the night. #northcascades #hiddenlake #peaks #firelookout #mountains #alpineglow #goodnight #hikertrash #optoutside
Somewhere on the California / Oregon border you can make the tough decision of where to sleep at night: cabin or fire lookout tower. (I went with the tower).
The thing I love most about my job, is driving around the state and having an excuse to visit magical places like this. #rainier #tolmiepeak #firelookout #naturephotography #nature #deer #pnwonderland #wa
Of course, to have an amazing sunrise, sometimes your sunset has to be like #northcascadesnationalpark #copperridge #firelookout #snowbusiness
Went up Mount Beljica via the Lake Christine Trail in the Glacier View Wilderness, then continued into Mount Rainier National Park for a trip up Gobblers Knob Lookout. My last fire tower in the park and my first visit to Glacier View. Not a bad day in the mountains. #pnw #glacierviewwilderness #mountrainiernationalpark #firelookout #hiking
Beautiful fall day. Warm. Nice cool breeze. Clear. Blue skies. Good day for a hike. We did the Thorp Mountain Fire Lookout via the Knox Creek Trail. TheIr are many different ways to get to the top. Trails range from 4.5-9 miles round trip. We chose the 4.5 mile version. But even though it was shorter we still gained about 2000 feet of elevation. #pnw #washingtontrails #daredevinadventures #firelookout #alltrails #thorpmountainlookout #fallhiking #mountrainier #washingtonstate #adventuretime
This will go down as one of my most favorite hikes yet. We backpacked up and stayed the night at a 100 year old Forest Service fire lookout in Montana in the middle of Grizzly country. The views were breathtaking!! I’m sure my fear of heights and the lookout being surrounded by cliffs of doom on three sides may also have played a part in that. Zoom in on the little dot on top of the mountain in the third photo; that’s the lookout way up there.~~~~~~~~~ Sidenote: Which of my fellow musician friends want to go back for the most epic songwriters retreat ever?? But seriously.
Currently day dreaming about this desk. Starting school next week and wishing I could do my homework right on it(I’d probably never get anything done though, Mt. Baker is just to pretty to keep your eyes off of). #parkbutte #mtbaker #firelookout #iwanttomovein #northcascades #terribleview
Gotta love Idaho fire lookouts! We stop at a few of them and chat on our rides @northernrockiesdsa #firelookout #idahome ❤️ #IDAHO #backcountry #idbdr #rockies #motorcyclerentals #nrdsa #nra
Don't let this beautiful tower, this piece of amazing history, fool you. It might look cool, and tall, and super chill but it is actually a homicidal, maniacal combination of metal and wood. 😋 This is only because I am terrified of heights. I made it to the first landing, approximately 15 stairs up, before I was gripped with fear to the point of being unsure if I could move enough to go back down the stairs. People who have hiked with me have seen this before - me balancing in the middle of a log over a trickle of a stream and suddenly unable to move. 😋 What do you do when you are consumed with fear? Do you lash out, make terrible jokes, get sweaty palms or turn in to a statue? After I do all of those things I reach out to anyone that may be able to offer me any sense of relief. I reach out to the guy that I met through Instagram, but I actually don't know, but who knows the area I'm in and can tell me that tower is harmless and I'm being ridiculous. I send streams of messages one after the other to my favorite people, hoping one of them sees it and can respond fast enough to comfort me or make me laugh. 😋 The last thing I do is have a dance party. On top of this hillside with no one around, a Borgore remix blasting out of my car and me dancing away the anxiety beneath that homicidal, maniacal combination of wood and metal. Because nothing puts you right quite like a dance party. 😅 #montana #bigskypic #tripointlookout #exploretocreate #wanderfolk #folkgood #liveauthentic #beautifuldestinations #firelookout #wilderness_culture #wanderlust #wildoutdoors #hikeislife #womenwhohike
So the folks said not to drag them to every fire lookout in the area... not my fault Idaho Peak is listed as being one of the best places to bring your visiting friends and families for views in the West Kootenay. I’d never actually been before, so ✅ another epic little day hike and lookout off the list.
Quick adventure to Heybrook lookout! #heybrooklookout #hiking #familyadventures #nature #pnw #furbabies 🐾 #wa #firelookout

Today I needed some altitude, some expansive views, and some nature therapy. Luna Mae did too. This old fire lookout appears to be about 12’x12’. Basically the exact square footage of my tiny house. . . . #getoutside #sheexplores #smalldwelling #oldfirelookout #livewylder #wanderlightly #minamalism #144squarefeet #appreciatetheold #madetowander #firelookout #hikepnw #firelookoutsoforegon #bedeeplyrooted #wyldergoods #naturebathing #happyholisticliving #happynaturallife #simplebydesign #simplify #foreveradventure #morethanlyme
First day on duty working the lookout! #sierranevada #firelookout #edabbey
When your coworker is at the fire lookout, of course a visit is a must! #firelookout #cinnamonbutte #umpquanationalforest #usfs #botanycrew #oregonexplored
Checked the highest road in the state off her bucket list. Toyota really should have named this silver color Washington Sky #gethigh #gravelgoat #adventuremobile #northcascades #methowvalley #firelookout #toyotatacoma #letsgoplaces
Good morning! I woke up in my happy place and was granted the views I came here for. Yesterday was one of my longest days on trail since I broke my ankle almost a year ago... this morning I feel like I could reach Dakobed in two big bounds with the help of those puffy clouds. It's good to be back.
Here is the lookout I meant to post for #firelookoutmonday . This is Mt. Brown Lookout in #glaciernationalpark . Built in 1928, it's no longer staffed but is an excellent steep hike with great views. It survived the 2017 Sprague Fire after being wrapped with fire resistant material. #firelookout #hikingadventures #bestjobever
Early 1900s postcard of Shoot Flying Hill Tower in Centerville, Ma. Notice the horse drawn carriage! The tower was used to identify fires in the area. #firelookout #centervillehistoricalmuseum #early1900s #horsedrawncarriage
