This Bay Area Fire Lookout Might Have the Best View in the World – Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg – The Atlantic
Gary Yost, a photographer in Marin County, also spends his time volunteering as a fire lookout at the peak of Mt. Tamalpais. The lookout hut there has a breathtaking 360° view, looking south to San Francisco, Oakland, and beyond. Luckily for us, Yost shoots stunning time-lapse footage of the surrounding landscape and included some of this footage in his six-minute “day in the life” video diary below. Yost’s passion for the natural world shines through in his still images as well — don’t miss his series about nesting hummingbirds! He describes his work as a volunteer and his inspiration for the video in an interview below.
