A weekday trip over the pass to the Salmon River headwaters and into the Sawtooth Valley and just outside of Stanley, Idaho.
Good , (awesome) weather, rode the Grizzly just because I could.
Programmed a flight plan for the drone for a tour around the lookout.
The flight was good, but the drone didn't record.
But I flew it manually again later and have some decent video.
I was up here a few years ago with the USFS "Passport In Time", or "PIT" program. We repaired stairs, shutters and railings and painted the place.
The page on that is here, Basin Butte Project 2008.
Since then, the Halstead fire burned through the area. The lookout was pretty much in the middle of it and I wonder how it didn't burn.
The Halstead Fire was started by lightning in July of 2012.
It burned 181,798 Acres
