Blue Ridge fire lookout (exterior)

View from the summit of Blue Ridge (elev. 5,950') near Sawyers Bar, California.  The peak has a fantastic view of the Trinity Alps to the south, plus the many high peaks of the Klamath Mountains spanning to English Peak to the north.  It lies on a high ridge close to the historic Eddy Gulch lookout.  An abandoned fire lookout is located here, having been established on October 25, 1934, at least based on the cement foundation.  It is a classic aermotor viewtower from the 1930s era, 80' high & being of solid metal w/ a 7'x7' seating area at the top.  The person on duty would live in the nearby house w/ a parking garage included.  Today these structures are abandoned & left in decay, but are always neat to stumble upon as these particular lookouts are relatively rare today.  I was able to climb to the top despite a few wooden slats missing & during an occasional breeze still did not flinch one bit after 85 years standing.
