Abstract

In selecting a site for a lookout station on the Sopris National Forest, the least of our troubles was to find elevation. Scores of peaks, projecting from 12,000 to 14,000 feet or more, are located all over the Forest in places suitable for taking observations at long range. It was found, however, that on excessively high situations the clouds and storms are so frequent that these become less efficient than lower points.
