    Verdi Fire Tower and the First Woman Forest Ranger

    I have posted videos and taken a few forum members to this nearby lookout tower. Thought I would share an old newspaper clipping about the tower's past and it's notable staff.VerdiPeak.jpg

    I love reading stuff like this Fred. Even a little more meaning to it now since we've been there. Thanks for sharing.
