Yesterday we published a post about a recent legal case involving the old Green Mountain lookout building - a little shack from the 1930s on a remote mountaintop in Washington State’s Glacier Peak Wilderness. Although the pictures in the post were pretty, and the story - although about a preservation loss - pretty clear, I wanted to post this video, created by High Country News, that gives a firsthand account of what it was like to be a fire lookout on top of Green Mountain.
What do you think - should places like this, in areas designated for wilderness, be preserved as traces of human imprint on and interaction with the land?
