Fire Lookout on High Ground

The Fire Lookout is part of Montana's past as well as present. Some of these remain in operation; others have been converted into "rentals" for adventurous hikers. This is the "Sliderock" lookout and it is now an exhibit at the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula. This lookout is complete with all the equipment used by the "lookouts." Performing duties at a Fire Lookout was (and remains) a lonely experience, but a VERY important job.
