Looking out from the Black Fox Fire Lookout


What a treat this was!!

I knew that this would be a great place to Jeep up to and I wasn’t disappointed.  After Sean (a long time friend and fellow geocacher) and I found all 601 Geocaches on the LPPT (Lemurian Playground) Power Trail we pointed the Jeep towards the direction of the GC3632G Black Fox (Look-out) by xpm-robin and Chinookcapt and made our way up.

The clouds began getting darker and darker, hoping it wouldn’t rain we crept slowly up the mountain.  We were soon looking across at Mt Shasta, Elevation 14,180.  We were not up that high, Black Fox is only 6,504 ft but it felt like we could reach out and touch the clouds they were so close!!  What a fun drive up here.  When we got to the lookout, Joel invited us up.  This lookout is an active fire lookout and Joel showed us around the tiny space he has called home for 20 years!  Imagine that!!

While we were there he had an actual call come in about a fire in his district.  This was the highlight of our weekend caching trip for me, I am sure Sean thought so too!!  Couldn’t top this so we headed back down and called it a day, but it was all great.  Caching our way through 601 caches on the LPPT, discovering all the treasures along the way.

    Sounds like you had a great time. How long did take to drive up the road?

      We were all ready in the area, so from the time we left the pavement up to the Lookout was about 45 minutes. Give or take, because we stopped to grab a couple of Geocaches too!
