Out in the Bob this weekend, looking for elk, I found something I did not expect.

The remains of what must have been an old fire lookout.  Wood stove, outhouse nearby, illegible trail sign, anchor cables cemented into the rock, nails and shards of immolated glass everywhere.  What else could it be?

All at the end of a trail which, really, doesn’t get much use anymore.  It’s good stuff like this isn’t on maps.  Stumbling upon it is the proper way to know.

And yes, I found the must well traveled elk trail I’ve ever seen.
