The Fire Lookout Life: Nighttime in a Glass Hut on Middle Sister Peak - Idaho

The fire seasons over, and I am safely back home after a 2900+ mile drive from the Pacific Northwest to my home on the east coast. After the initial problems on Independence Day weekend, I had no more incidents. Measures were put in place, and it was made obvious to the public using the National Forest that the lookout was a US Government facility and was protected as such.

I now think that I was over-cautious in not identifying my forest location here on DU. I was in the Idaho Panhandle National Forests.

In fact, I found the people of the Idaho panhandle to be some of the best I have had the chance to be around in my years of doing fire watch. There was never any discussion of politics, religion, and after that July 4 incident, no firearms (on open display). Even crazy Coeur d'Alene was a very wonderful place.

But the heavy rains of August brought my fire season to an end. I plan to be back in the same lookout tower next year.

Sunrise: Wilderness Fire Lookout Tower (8/28/2023)

Maybe the last sunscape/moonscape for a few days. Tomorrow brings heavy rains and a chance of snow at the higher elevations in my area of the Pacific Northwest. My fire season ends next Tuesday, September 5. It is a fire management decision that I agree with 100%.
