The Lookout: The first line against forest fires

Each summer, Leif Haugen lives in a tiny cabin in the Flathead National Forest of northwestern Montana, where he serves as the fire lookout for the forest. His amenities are few. There is no running water or electricity in the cabin that serves as his home and office. He spends his days sitting in solitary watching for any signs of a fire, quickly responding to the occasional outbreak. Brian Bolster’s film ‘The Outlook’ follows Leif through his time on up on the mountain documenting the nuances of his crucial role while also featuring the beautiful views and vast nature that surrounds him.


Droning Around the Largest Cave on Earth

Ryan Deboodt recently posted an awe inspiring video of the world’s largest cave, Hang Son Doong.  Hang Son Doong is located in Vietnam, and translates to “Mountain River cave”. Deboobt used multiple cameras including a GoPro and a DJI Phantom drone, to capture the serious awesomeness of this cave. Enjoy the stunning views, we certainly did. Happy Tuesday from The Ironicle.
