Shelters from the storm- a night on a mountain top in a historic fire Lookout.

Forecast called for a weekend of heavy rain and high winds. Seemed like the perfect opportunity to forego my decidedly wimpy 3-season tent in favor of something sturdier and more robust.

The Park Butte Lookout, built in the early 1930’s seemed like a good choice.
