Fire Lookouts of Montana – Photographed by Tom Persinger

Work few can do but a lifestyle of solitude many admire and aspire to achieve.

“Working deep in the back country of Montana’s rugged Rocky Mountains, Pittsburgh-based photographer Tom Persinger photographed three men who spend their summers perched high atop peaks keeping watch over some of our nation’s most pristine places miles from the nearest road or modern convenience. Day and night they scan the horizon for curly gray wisps of smoke rising from the forest below: a tell tale sign of fire.”

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m in rmc, and can not find my way to the rocky mountains. it requires me to quite college.. and I just can’t do it. I seem to have failed. But thank you for sharing this with me and others. And I hope all good comes. 🙂

    Bye! 🙂
