Mangas Mountain Lookout

We stopped by the Mangas Mountain fire tower and had a wonderful chat with Patrick, the lookout there. Most fire towers have been replaced by various technological innovations, but New Mexico still uses several of them. New Mexico has had a very dry winter and is expecting a big fire season - early detection has already stopped several fires from spreading to more than a couple acres.
