"A large Douglas-fir veteran on the ridge above the camp towered above the Spruce-Balsam forest. A decision was made to convert it into a forest fire lookout. This photo shows a climber going up to top it. After the top was removed, a platform was built. Large spikes were used to provide steps." --from the notes of Ralph Schmidt in accompanying file
