+The Navigatorz Posted September 3, 2004 Share Posted September 3, 2004 (edited) Red Top Lookout I love going to firewatch lookout towers. I've been to several in my lifetime and each one has its own spectacular view and interesting history. I have found geocaches hidden at the following lookouts: DEW Line at Slate Peak. Tower remains. 7440 feet elevation. Stunning views of North Cascade Peaks and Mt. Baker. A Beautiful View on Mission Ridge near Wenatchee. The tower is gone but the pillars remain. 6880 feet elevation. View of Stewart Range, Mt. Rainier, and Wenatchee valley. Lion Rock north of Ellensburg. Tower is gone. 6539 feet elevation. View of Rainier and Stewart Range. Sugarloaf located north of Leavenworth, WA. Tower remains. 5814 feet elevation. View of Lake Wenatchee and Cascades. And I own a geocache at: Lookout Below at Red Top Mountain near Blewett Pass (Hiway 97). View of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Stewart. 5361 feet elevation. And I am aware of geocaches at the following lookouts (they're on my to do list): Lightnin' Bill at Goat Peak Lookout north of Mazama.. Tower remains. 7001 feet elevation. NW Jeepn3 Raven's Roost at Raven's Roost lookout. Tower is gone. 6000 feet elevation. I'm sure there are others. I'd like to locate other WA state geocaches at lookout towers or locations of former lookout towers. Can you name some you have visited by name, link or waypoint, location, elevation if known, and describe the view? Edited September 3, 2004 by The Navigatorz Quote Link to comment
