Volunteers with Friends of the Metolius have been working with the Forest Service to restore the old 1923 D6 cupola on Black Butte in the Deschutes National Forest. When I hiked up there in 2016 it was looking a bit run-down so I’m very glad to hear that restoration efforts are underway. Thank you volunteers!
Friends of the Metolius has updates and photos on their website:
Central Oregon Daily also did a story on the project:
