forest fire lookout

On the heels of our ode to cabin life, we couldn’t resist passing along this batch of photos from Tom Persinger, detailing one of the cooler jobs in the world: forest fire lookout. These lucky gentlemen get to spend all day in cabins on top of Montana’s highest peaks, gazing out at the woodsy expanse below and making sure none of it’s on fire. Someone’s gotta do it.
