Osier Ridge was first a log cabin and a 30′ pole platform in 1921.
In 1938 a 55′ pole L-4 was built.
In 1961 a 41′ TT R-6 Flat tower was built.
This tower is staffed during the fire season.
We visited Osier Ridge Lookout when a friend of ours was staffed there in late summer 2022.
Nate shared some great stories from his career working in helitak and walked us through what his volunteering at lookouts in the Clearwater National Forest entails.
While there we were witness to a spectacular thunder and lightning show and one of the most gorgeous sunsets.
