Most of you know that Palomar Mountain has two Fire Lookouts back in operation.  Boucher Lookout has been recently refurbished. and will open to visitors mid-May.  You can visit Boucher through the State Park.  Spectacular views from up there!  High Point Lookout can be seen from North Crestline and the Mendenhall Valley, up on the ridge to the east of the Observatories.

Chairman, Curt Waite shared these photos of the most recent Forest Fire Lookout Association training.  Palomar Residents Glenn Borland, and Robert Carlyle, now join Mike Sterling, and Chip Tidball as volunteers with ties to the Mountain.  The goal is to have both towers staffed daily through the summer and fire season.
