Fire Tower

These photos was a Mt. Lofty Fire tower, as always if no current photos, the archive was the last resources  to find something.  It was a gloomy day, taken last 2006, the fire tower is 34m sitting at the top of Mt. Lofty on Adelaide Hills. The purpose of the tower is to spot fires around Adelaide hills and inform the local Country fire service to direct the volunteers where the fire is. Adelaide Hills are covered with trees and there is potential that fire may exist anytime as what happened before and is very dangerous to local residents. The famous one is during Ash Wednesday bush fire which kills many people.

    It has been very windy here in Ohio yesterday and today. It is also very wet and cold. The leaves are falling. The sky is a dark winter gray color. I can't seem to stay warm.

    I enjoyed my visit to your blog.

    Hi there - interesting picture. After the fires of a couple of summers back I think we need to build some more of these.
