Washington State’s 93 Remaining Fire Lookouts

On July 1, 2019, I climbed the ladder to the summit of Mount Pilchuck, officially completing a several year journey to visit and photograph all of Washington’s last standing fire lookouts.

It’s going to take a bit of time to share all of my photos, history, and stories from every lookout I’ve had the privilege to visit, but I’m committed to updating at least one new page per week in celebration of #FireLookoutFriday! I’ll be linking up the photos below and reorganizing some information I had here previously, so keep visiting for more. (If you see a red bar under the lookout photo, that means it’s a work in progress and as you can tell, I have my work cut out for me!)

And please, if you have any stories of these lookouts you’d like to share, drop me a message. I’d love to hear them and include them!
