From a mountaintop perch near an historic fire lookout, you can soak up dramatic views of distant ridgelines while getting a glimpse into Washington’s past. Amber Casali's new guidebook, Hiking Washington's Fire Lookouts, offers a quintessential Northwest experience that gives adventurers of every skill level the chance to both enjoy expansive views and learn all about the history of these unique structures.

There are 44 memorable lookouts in the Cascades and Olympics, all accessible by trails on public lands. The state's fire lookouts have not only played an important role in forest-fire management, but have also been temporary homes for the interesting people who spend summers isolated from civilization to watch over the forests below. Learn about the amazing history behind these structures.

Enjoy a slide presentation full of gorgeous photos, followed by a Q&A session and book signing. Admission is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
