An easy quarter-mile walk on an abandoned road seems to lead to the top of the world. Young children will enjoy the challenge of reaching the site of a fire lookout built in 1931 on the top of the mountain, where the family will find a breathtaking view of the Olympic Mountains and the waterways of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Victoria, Vancouver Island, Bellingham, and Mount Baker. Children will be intrigued with the tiny oceangoing ships, like toy boats in a bathtub, and the plume of smoke rising from a pulp mill in distant Port Angeles, and by a solar-powered radio structure near the top of Blue Mountain.
