    • Bldg 4005 was a mountain top fire lookout constructed at monument 83 on the Washington, British Columbia border & it was operated by the United States Forest Service. However, after its construction & commission an up dated survey determined that it sits on the Canadian side of the 49th parallel. It was subsequently replaced by a tower (situated on their side of the border) & now serves as a hiker's shelter in Manning Provincial Park.

    • and this is from up on top of Desolation, where Jack Kerouac came down from at the beginning of Desolation Angels...this lookout is still staffed when the risk of fires is high...
