Every Lookout in Oregon

Sodhouse Tower

Type: 90′ steel tower
Status: Abandoned
Elevation: 4,200 feet
Visited: May 15, 2012

The second tower I visited at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was the 90-foot-tall Sodhouse tower.

As with the P Ranch tower at the other end of the refuge, this tower is closed and the bottom set of stairs has been removed. It sits on a bluff with a pretty nice view. Right below is the headquarters for the wildlife refuge and beyond is Malheur Lake.

As at P Ranch this tower may have been used for viewing wildlife instead of for spotting fires.
