McBride's Old Forestry Lookout

    Back in 1930, in order to spot forest fires, the BC Forest Service built a fire lookout building up on McBride Peak, which gave the lookout man a majestic view of the Robson Valley.  Perched on the edge of the slope, and subject to high winds, it had to be anchored by cables so it wouldn’t blow over.  The lookout has been recently restored and not only offers a focal point for hikers, but also provides protection if the weather turns bad.  Here are some shots I took of the lookout on the hike we did last Sunday.

Can you spot the lookout in this photo?
