About the Author

Leslie Romer grew up on a barrier island off New Jersey, with sand dunes the high points on the landscape. First hiking Olympic forest trails in her mid-twenties, she acquired a fascination with forest fire lookouts from her hiking companions and has now visited over 500 lookout sites in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. In this hike-and-history book about the forest fire lookouts in Washington's coastal region, she has brought together old-timers' memories and forgotten historical records to solve some of the mysteries surrounding the iconic fire watch sites.Leslie now lives in Olympia, Washington, and loves dividing her time between hiking and writing about it.Author's Note: In her text, the author recognizes that questions remain-the an-swers not found in archives, or hidden in the salal at a fire lookout site. If you make discoveries, she asks that you share them with a comment to her website, www.LeslieRomer.com, or a post on the Fire Lookouts of Washington Facebook page.The hike information in this text is the result of two decades of exploring these trails. Road, trail, and weather conditions change. Property ownership and use regulations change. When Leslie gains new information about the lookout sites in this region, she posts on her website, usually with a summary message on the Fire Lookouts of Washington Facebook page.
