Rocky Mountain National Park

Throwback Thursday: Twin Sisters Fire Lookout was the first lookout in Rocky Mountain National Park. This picture, taken in 1926, shows why this lookout was so strategic in spotting fires. Not a bad place to spend the day! The Twin Sisters Lookout was rebuilt in 1968 and then removed in 1976.

To find out more about the history of fire management in the West and in Rocky Mountain National Park, check out the Centennial Events coming up in the next week!
