How To Rent a Fire Lookout in PNW 2ND Editionby Tom Foley
Synopses & Reviews
This completely updated edition of the first complete guide to the cabins and fire lookouts available for rent in Oregon and Washington now covers a total of 61 properties (29 new!). Ranging from a luxurious cabin just off the road to a remote 60-foot tower deep in the wilderness, these scenic, secluded, and historic structures can be your own private place in the woods.
Book News Annotation:
The view is spectacular, and so is the hike in and then, often, up. Oregon and Washington forests are dotted by 60-foot towers, ground-level guard stations, ranger cabins, warming shelters, and bunkhouses that once housed rangers. Now, with airplane surveillance and other systems the buildings are empty and available to rent by the night. The 65 entries here include a brief description, history, elevation, availability, suitability (for example, for pets or small children), capacity, safety considerations, what to bring, and how to get there. Each entry includes directions on how to make reservations, charges, and amenities.
