The Drone Footage Captured From This Oregon Fire Lookout Is Downright Astounding

Here in Oregon, beautiful views are not exactly in short supply. From impressive rock formations to majestic mountains, our state is overflowing with postcard-worthy scenes. We found some drone footage that proves our point, and it is truly awe-inspiring. Located in the Willamette National Forest near Blue River, Oregon, Carpenter Mountain is home to a one-of-a-kind fire lookout. Built in 1934, this incredible lookout is perched at an elevation of 5349 feet atop the mountain, which is surrounded by some of the most otherworldly scenery in the Beaver State.

This stunning video, shot by McKenzie River Drone Photography, captures the unique beauty of the Carpenter Mountain Fire Lookout. Treat yourself to this breathtaking aerial footage, which proves that our state is gorgeous from any angle.
