COPPER MOUNTAIN LOOKOUT
R.I.P. 1923-1942
Developed about 1918 with a tree platform, this 40' pole tower with 6x6' cab and ground log cabin living quarters were built in 1923. An L-4 cab was added for ground living quarters in 1934. A 50' steel tower was constructed in 1940, and moved to Faset Peak L.O. in 1954. The two towers coexisted on opposite sides of the flat summit until at least 1949.
