Out peak bagging today in the slash lands of north Idaho I came across this on the summit of Sunset Mtn near Clarkia. It's about 75' off the ground and still has the old phone wire dangling from the remains of the platform. I've never seen one in the flesh and it probably won't be standing much longer as this old tree gave up the ghost long ago.
A bit of research shows that a site was here in 1919.
An interesting story on Crystal Peak, near Fernwood. The rental lookout is not located on the actual summit and was moved there from another site near Chewelah, Wa to a private parcel on the lower slopes of the mountain. Crystal Peak is, however, the site of a former lookout until the mid-90's. Not sure if paying 200 bucks a night to stay there is on my bucket list though.
