I have thus far been unsuccessful in snagging a reservation at the Indian Ridge lookout, but since I was in the area last weekend I decided to drive up and have a look at it. I’m going to have to try harder to get a reservation here because the views are pretty amazing! The Three Sisters are front and center:
Here’s a panorama looking east along the Cascades. Spectacular!
The lookout was occupied, of course. A car was there, but it was very quiet and I think the renters were taking a nap. Wise choice on this hot afternoon.
Looks like there was a good beargrass bloom up here a few weeks ago.
A parting view of the lookout on the way back down:
UPDATE: I rented this tower in 2019. Read about that experience here.
