Casey Greene is a cartographer for the Adventure Cycling Association, which means that it’s his job to travel by mountain bike across northern Idaho and Montana and stay in mountaintop fire lookouts eight of ten nights. Jealous yet? Just wait.
The McGuire Fire Lookout is located at 6,970 feet in the Kootenai National Forest. It was first used as a camp in 1921. The cabin was built in 1924, was left unused for several decades, and was then restored in 1983. It served as Greene’s lodging on the seventh day of his trip. Be sure to check out his entire Flickr stream of the trip, but be prepared, 1) to spend a lot of time there, and, 2) to get the jones for some northern Rockies adventure ridin’.
