โœจWith this gorgeous weather this week we decided to hike to the top of Squaw Mountain... It was a 3.4 mile hike with some sweet Cascade Mountain views; here's Gilly sitting on some stairs of a former lookout station taking it all in. โ€ข๐Ÿ’™โ€ข I have to say a big Thank you to one of my sister's twin step daughters who kicked me down her old iphone5c as I patiently waited for my grant check to come my way! You can see the much needed upgrade in my photos when I got it! I'm sooooo excited to upgrade to a newer phone soon! Maybe it will make everything sooo much easier for my business and my #instgame ... โ€ข๐Ÿ’™โ€ข #exploregon #welovemountains #oregonexplored ๐ŸŒฒ #highabove #cascadiaexplored #squawmountainfirelookout #highvibe #getoutsideandplay #evergreenlife #wemadeittothetop #sweetview #upgrade #upgreyedd
Iโ€™m not a big fan of the snow, but the weather was great for a mountain adventure ๐Ÿ”. Stayed the night in the Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout and the visibility was amazing. Wow.
I will endure the darkness, because it shows me the stars. #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #starphotography #astrophotography #arapahonationalforest
Only two nights were spent at the lookout. The time was solid with adventure and unique experiences. I had time to write, to explore self and nature, and to escape reality for just a bit. Take only photos... #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #rockymountains #firetower #arapahonationalforest #chiefmountain #getoutside #outdooradventures #explore
When youโ€™re too distracted by the nighttime views to wonder if staying in a fire watch tower counts as camping.
Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1940โ€™s, the Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout is rentable online for $80 a night. #squawmountainfirelookout #squawmountain #firetower #therockies #getoutside #arapahonationalforest #outdooradventures #rockymountains
Second night in the fire lookout. When you stay in a glass house, you canโ€™t really avoid the sun, and even the moon can keep you up at night. Luckily it set at 3:30A. #mountainview #firetower #backpacking #firelookout #hikingadventures #hiking #squawmountainfirelookout #squawmountain #stars #therockies #starphoto #rockymountains #nightsky #starphotography #astrophotography
Breakfast of Champions. The wind on day 2 was strong enough to carry off two pieces of my bacon... a looked for that bacon. Never found it. #squawmountainfirelookout #squawmountain #bacon #getoutside #therockies #outdooradventure #rockymountains #baconandeggs #mountainbreakfast #bestmadeco #bestmade
Squaw Mountain, Elevation 11,486ft. Our last hike as an engaged couple. Sappy but true. ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿ‘ฐ Didnโ€™t have the chance to conquer another 13er but had some great views and fall colors in the mountains. #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #bacheloretteparty #tinatheterror #nelliethedog #sometimeslostforeverfound
The rising sun reveals fog had settled the night in the Denver area well below the top of Squaw Mountain #denver #rockies #denverigers #coloradoigers #squawmountain #sunrise #squawmountainfirelookout #rockymountains #hiking #getoutside #firetower #outdooradventure
Arrived in Denver late, drove an hour and a half, hiked one mile up Squaw Mountain, after dark, elevation 11,486, in 40ยฐ weather, carrying 45 pounds, including camera equipment to arrive at the most amazing site and to sleep in the Squaw Mountain Fire Tower with these most beautiful stars. #altitudesucks #hiking #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #nighthiking #igersdenver #hikingafterdark #igerscolorado #outdooradventures #startrails #nightsky #nightphotography #astrophotography #starphotography #firetower #getoutside #stars #rockymountains #therockies
Squaw Mountain firetower over Labor Day weekend :). #firetower #colorfulcolorado #squawmountainfirelookout
Saturday morning personal reflection hike. Pretty easy 4-mile hike with a cool fire tower destination. Also, itโ€™s a peak that I can frequently see from Denver (when the smoke clears) and Iโ€™ve always been curious about it. Now Iโ€™ve been to the top! #rockies #pedalsteel #colorado #hiking #squawmountainfirelookout
I've decided to hike Big Moose on Sept 24th while Shaina sleeps in ๐Ÿ˜† With an 1150' elevation gain in less than 3/4 of a mile, this will be my steepest ascent yet - and I'm going solo! This will be my 2nd mountain from the #mooseheadpinnaclepursuit with the 3rd #borestonemountain coming up in October โ›ฐ I suppose most girls like a spa day for their #metime but I'll take the sweat and the struggle over the primping any day! . . . #goals #at2023 #bigmoosemountain #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #solohike #peace #takemetothewoods #takemetomaine #mooseheadismyhappyplace #destinationmooseheadlake #keeperofme #getoutandhike #vacationgoals
With so many wildfires in Colorado we took to the high ground so we could see them coming! . The Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout sits over 11k feet in elevation and has an incredible 360 degree view...simply amazing place. It can be rented through the Forest Service but credit goes out to the Forest Fire Lookout Association who lovingly restored the tower and activly works to keep up with maintenance. To learn more about the association visit http://firelookout.org. . . #firelookout #squawmountainfirelookout @kwdesignsphotography #wildfire
Canโ€™t think of one thing that would have made the last 24 hours more delightful #maybeifitdidntend #squawmountainfirelookout
Brian and I went up to Squaw Mountain firelookout tower for the 4th of July this year. Hooked up on the 3rd and came back down in the 5th. Had beautiful sunset and blah sunrises, too many clouds in the mornings. We were able to see 6 #fireworks shows the night of there third and the fog/clouds came in and surrounded us on the fourth. We couldn't see the antenna for a while and it got so bad the outhouse was getting blocked too! #nationalforest #Colorado #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #4thofjuly #firelookout #firelookouttower #firewatch #denver #hike #sunset #coloradosunset #tradition

Sleep doesnt come easy at 11,500 ft. But its worth it to wake up with views like this! #squawmountainfirelookout #idahosprings #wanderlust

Amazing time watching the light change from 11,500 ft at #squawmountainfirelookout near #mountevans #idahosprings #evergreencolorado #frontrange
Wasnโ€™t expecting snow, whipping winds, and such high elevations, but we survived!!! #firetower #firewatch #squawmountainfirelookout #cabin #rockymountains #elevationsickness #hikein #usforestry #taxdollars
We spotted no fires, but manned the fire tower regardless. #squawmountainfirelookout was amazing, and the evening blanketed the surrounding mountains with nearly a foot of fresh #snow . Glad we hiked the #snowshoe s up, cuz they were essential on the way down.

How cool is this place? Mike rented us the fire tower lookout at squaw mountain. We hiked in 1.8 miles and this is our view tonight. #familytime #squawmountainfirelookout #coloradomountains

The reward of spending the night on top of a mountain, unless you consider frozen toes a reward #idont #squaaaaaaaaw

We had an INCREDIBLE snowshoeing/hiking trip up Squaw Mountain to the fire lookout tower! Yay adventures! #squawmountainfirelookout #winteradventures #coloradowinter #sunshine #sowindy #adventurelife #lovemyfiance #valentinesadventure #vitaminn #gorgeous
Ever want to spend the night at -1.5F, with wind chill of -25F, and sustained 20mph winds? What if it had panoramic views of the entire front range and its largest peaks ,and the room was a hair above freezing? If you do, it might look something like this. Unfortunately, I cant tell you how it feels, but I can tell you #peefreezesinstantly #andyouhavetoincinerateyourpoop ย #squaaaaaaaaw
So apparently the super bowl was yesterday? Congrats to whichever sports teamโ€™s fans enjoyed a win last night! As for me... my head is still in the clouds from all of the AMAZING views this weekend! #squawmountainfirelookout #womenwhohike #sheexplores #sunrises #themountainsarecalling #coloradogram #coloradical
Itโ€™s amazing up here. 360 views of sunrise at 11,500ft with my favorite person .... feeling very grateful to have spent Joshโ€™s birthday weekend in such a beautiful place! @recreation_gov #coloradogram #squawmountainfirelookout #coloradical #sunriseview #traveldeeper #rockymountainhigh #sheexplores
