Bighole Lookout

This old Lookout house is in the Lolo National Forest in western Montana’s Cabinet Mountains. It was built in 1930 and sits a quarter of a mile southeast of the summit of Bighole Peak on the cliff overlooking the “big hole” from which it got its name. It was abandoned in 1970 but still is in surprisingly good condition. Its elevation is 6,919 feet. It probably wasn’t a good post for anyone who might have been prone to sleepwalking.
