Ascent Trip Report

Finally made it to the lookout. Spoke at length with Kathy who was a paid employee at the lookout for 23 years but now is just a volunteer. Discussed the fire lookout programs, and the status of rebuilding Vetter back at home. The lady who originally staffed the Buck Rock lookout happened to be visiting for the day. Took her photo, but forgot to get her name. An amazing architectural feat.

Long drive, short walk and 170+ stairs.
