Teetering on an outcrop on Snider Ridge high above the glacially carved Sol Duc Valley is the Kloshe Nanitch lookout. A replica of the 1920s wooden cupola-like house that once graced this high ledge, it is every bit as graceful as the original. Chinook Jargon for “stand guard” or “stand watch,” Kloshe Nanitch once served as a fire lookout in the early days of the Olympic National Forest. But while fires are now patrolled by aircraft, thousands of acres of the rugged surroundings can still be spotted from this restored post.
