Washington Fire Lookouts by Kyle Johnson (via Filson Life)

by Forest Eckley | August 02, 2013

Just caught up on the July blog posts at Filson Life and was struck by the stunning images in a post about the remaining Washington State fire lookouts. Seattle-based photographer Kyle Johnson has been trekking into the wildest parts of Washington to experience and document the views of the Lookout Rangers who worked here beginning in the 1930s and 1940s.
