This old tower is really grown in. You can just see the legs to the right of the bike.
West of Thunder Bay Ontario Ca.

During a ride with Motorcycle Classics magazine around Elkhart Lake, WI. Not sure if it was a fire lookout, but close enough.

Rode the GS up to this one last weekend. The keeper had been stationed here every summer since the 80's. Couldn't see Mt. Lassen or Shasta due to the cloud cover. It even snowed on us.

Harvey Mountain Lookout on the Lassen National Forest is the only known remaining example of the original 1918 design of a 4A lookout cab with thick iron straps covering the wood supports between the windows. Built in 1919 it may be the longest serving active lookout in California. 7317'


From the parking area.


Looking east toward Nevada.


The water "faucet" was an old pump style.

1919... well, close...the guard said the upper part of Lake Mtn was rebuilt in '34.
Do you have any close up photos of the Harvey Mtn Lookout?
