Type: 50′ tower with octagonal cab
Visited: July 3, 2021
While staying at the Fall Mountain Lookout we visited several lookouts in the area. First up today was Calamity Butte. The three mile drive on Road 2860 and 155 to the top was rough and rocky, but we made it in the Outback.
I believe this is only the second tower I’ve ever visited with an octagonal cabin (the other was Sisi Butte).
The original D5 cabin from 1927 is still up here.
The views were hazy from California wildfire smoke:
There’s also an old garage/shed.
