Every Lookout in Oregon

Mt. Hood lookouts

On November 14 I scanned photos at the Mt. Hood National Forest offices for my Mt. Hood history book. I went back today and scanned some more. Lots of great stuff!

I also scanned a lot of lookout photos that will be candidates for the next book I’m going to work on, a history of Oregon’s fire lookouts. Below is an undated photo of the Bull of the Woods lookout in better days. It’s abandoned now, and I haven’t been up there but I hear it’s starting to get in pretty bad shape. I hope to go see for myself this summer.
