Rooms with a view. + I recently wrote about staying in decommissioned fire lookouts for Oakland Magazine (and Alameda Magazine) and subsequently entered a rabbit hole browsing through images from our visits to four of the nearly one dozen lookouts available to rent in California. Link in profile.

“I’ll Leave a Light on for You” Actually, I have left generator-powered halogens on all night, on the catwalk rail, when search-and-rescue operations impacted my area of operations. Theory being that the lost, like moths, head for the light.

The Gloucester Tree Fire Lookout, Pemberton, WA - there's a warning sign headed 'Tree Climbing Risk', outlining the do's and dont's and pointing out that the lookout is 61 metres above the ground. At the end it says "if in doubt, do not climb"😳. Who are a couple of clumsy acrophobics to argue🤷‍♀️🤷🏻‍♂️?...so here's some pictures from the bottom 😂😂 But we did have a lovely weekend visiting our friends in Pemberton (loved hearing more about their involvement in the filming of the movie 'Jasper Jones' including being extras and the modifications to their house for some of the scenes) . . . . . . . #gloucestertree #pemberton #southwestwa #southwesternaustralia #perthisokay #discoverwesternaustralia #australia #firelookout #firelookouttower #instatravel #instapassport #ilovetravel #travelgram #traveldiary #travelpassion #tripadvisor #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #natgeo #natgeotravel #huffposttravel #iamatraveler #scaredofheights
Lookouts visited (some of them anyways)! #firelookout #firelookouttower #firelookouts
Camping outdoors is 👌🏻 but the warmth of a fire lookout while watching a storm roll by is also quite nice. Warm and dry sleeping bags are always helpful. Check out our blog for tips on staying in a fire lookout! Link in bio. . . .

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

🌲This Oregon fire lookout tower sits at the top of Black Butte in the Deschutes National Forest, and happens to play quite a significant role in my romantic suspense novel, Lost in the Right Direction. Interesting fact: the tower was constructed in 1995, assembled below the Butte and then lifted by helicopter in two sections. It stands 65 feet above the summit of the butte, at 6436 feet. 🌲 #firelookout #firelookouttower #pnw #pnwonderland #deschutesnationalforest #lostintherightdirectionnovel #usforestservice #hiking #oregonhikes #iamwriting
“There are a number of lookout towers throughout the Pacific Northwest, some are fully functioning lookout towers only to be rented during the off-season, while others are available year-round. Two of the towers I booked were 40ft towers with incredible views of the mountain ranges above Oregon's popular Douglas Firs.” —@bexie_r . .

One of our #archivesResolutions is to meet new people. Even if they've been gone a while. We'll add their stories to our oral history database so you can meet them, too. http://ow.ly/gw9C30hKexG #archiveshashtagparty . . This is Lucille and Homer Alley. They can tell you all about being fire lookouts on the Dayton Fire Tower. #historicwyoming #firespotters #firelookouttower #daytonwyoming #wyohistory #Wyoming #couplesgoals #theyveseenitall #sheridancounty

In my novel, Lost in the Right Direction, Georgia meets sexy Forest Ranger Ben while hiking Black Butte in central #oregon Thanks to my friend @oregonasian5 for capturing this picture of Ben’s #firelookout tower in the middle of our #pnwonderland winter. So jealous she was able to do this #hike in the snow! Definitely on my must-do list. _____________________ #lostintherightdirectionnovel #pnw #hiking #blackbuttehike #blackbutteoregon #firelookouttower #usforestservice #sistersoregon #getoutside #optoutside #snowshoeing #amwriting #writinginspiration #romance #romancenovel #lovestory #suckerforlovestories

I thought that I would share a photo of my grandmother who was a fire lookout at Grouse Ridge in the Sierra Nevada of northern California for about 8-10 years. This particular photo is from 1957. #grouseridgelookout #firelookouttower #firelookouts #northerncalifornia #sierracounty #sierranevadamountains #toughgrandma #californiahistory
火の見櫓 自宅前の櫓、子供の頃よく登っては大人に怒られた。最近は外で遊ぶ子も少ないが、先日やんちゃそうな小学生グループが珍しく挑戦していた。 痛いほど分かるその気持ち。立ち入り禁止ではあるがダメだとは言いたくない、考えて出た言葉は「壊れるよ」。 今にも壊れそうな雰囲気出てます。 #firelookouttower #fire #tower #tokyo #bluesky #火の見櫓 #青空 #鉄塔 #東京 #清瀬 #中里 #田舎 #わるがき #危険 #大人
From the fire lookout tower in the snow. It had dumped snow all night, and the wind was howling. In the morning, it looked like a pristine winter wonderland. —�— #PNW #FireLookoutTower #FireLookout #WinterWonderland #Snow #MtHood #UpperLeft #Forest #Northwest #nrthwst #Cabin #Snowshoe #OptOutside #ClearLake #NationalForest
The cabin & fire lookout tower on top of 10,000 ft Heliograph Peak. Both built in 1933 and still in use today. #mountaincabin #cabin #firelookout #firelookouttower #heliographpeak #pinalenomountains #coronadonationalforest #1933 #10000feet #hiking
Was surprised to find Jays Roost tower still standing, in the densely wooded Medicine Bow Range 2013 #firepower #firelookout #lookout #firelookouttower
There's no such thing as too many mountains. Agreed?! 💫
Hiked 7 miles total! Somewhere out here enjoying the view! 🌲🏔💕 #bullofthewoods #hiking #mountains #firelookouttower #redhair
