I know it’s a little late in the season to feature Bolan Mountain Lookout, ’cause you can’t rent the place this time of year. That said, NOW is the time of year to start making plans for next season. Reservations on the lookout towers go super fast and with good reason – the experience is phenomenal! Like a glass house in the sky, the small lookout gives a panoramic view of the Red Buttes and Siskiyou Wilderness areas. To the far north there are views of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness and the Illinois River Valley. On one of the days we were there we even caught a view of Mount Shasta to the south! The best part? If you’re fortunate enough to land on a clear evening, the nighttime view is like real-life iMax theater – stars in all directions!
