Default burley fire lookout help needed washington

anyone near this location ? it is burley fire lookout s.w. Washington.
a amateur radio person lost his backup power and remotely turned some things off but doesn't want his batteries to go dead.
i'm over 100miles from home to it.

I may go but checking if anyone is close.

this isn't a party type of thing .it is behind locked gates. thanks

Default Re: burley fire lookout help needed washington

we went up yesterday. snow was soft and gravel in places the first 2 miles. after 9 miles we chose to stop and snowshoe in. the road was full of snow and blading it would have taken over an hour and we it wasn't far to go. drifts were high and snow was 3 to 5 ft deep

taking off with snow trac and pistenbully

putting on gear. in the distance was the spot we stopped plowing.

standing on the road.

i'll get more pictures of the tower and fire lookout later.
oh, in the bank of batteries one was shorted and solar panel wouldn't charge them.
