After lingering for a long time on Dry Mountain we headed over to Bald Butte. A short spur road heads up to the lookout from Road 41. The road is just dirt and I wouldn’t want to drive it in wet conditions. A fallen tree stopped us about half a mile up, so we parked and walked.
Little did we know that this was the first of A LOT of arnica we would see this weekend:
The lookout hasn’t been used in awhile and is in bad shape:
Pieces of the lookout were scattered on the slope below:
The Forest Service has put a fence around the base to keep people from going up, but they just cut a hole in the fence:
We saw this strange pit. Old outhouse site? Seems strange that they didn’t fill it in.
From here we headed north to Sugarloaf!
