"Eyes of the Forest"
Mountaintop views, Idaho history and the value of human eyes searching the woods below bring the story of the state's forest lookouts into focus. IdahoPTV producer John Crancer traces Idaho's forest lookouts from 1902 to the present while visiting many of the remaining ones from North Idaho into the mountains of the central and southwest parts of the state. The show visits with people collecting, preserving and rebuilding the histories of Idaho lookouts. It also travels to the ends of roads and trails to meet people who are still spending their summers watching for fires in one of the 50 to 60 lookouts still used for fire detection.G
