Colorado Adventure 2010 | Day 5
Sunday, August 29, 2010
After a good night’s sleep along the Jersey Jim Lookout Loop trail, I continued northeast towards the Jersey Jim Lookout.
From the 1930’s through the 1970’s fire lookout towers were at the heart of the Forest Service fire detection system. By the 1980’s these towers became obsolete as individual lightning strikes are now recorded by satellite and most forest fires are detected by airplanes. This tower is available to the public for nightly rental.
