North Cabin Road
Fire Tower

There is a new North Cabin Tower, we are unsure when it went up, since it seems likes it's been years since we actually stopped by it. The fancy new fence around the base isn't exactly inviting anyone over to have a gander at it. Although the tower that was here for a long time apparently  was decommissioned. There was a time when the "North Cabin Road" Fire tower was still standing and it came in handy in the spring of 2006. We were riding up the "Oil Well Road" when we came across a motorist in distress, 06-14. This was the politest description I could think of to use when discussing this individuals predicament to the RCMP! (After all this dude was someone's son or brother or what ever!) We left and were able to get cell reception by climbing part way up the north cabin tower. Best described as a motorist in distress, the R.C.M.P. paid him a visit with an off road 4x4 cruiser and a tow truck!

One of the snaps I took of this guy!





A Northerly view from the tower when I made that call to the R.C.M.P. That  is the Scott Lakes in the distance.

03-04 We stop at the North Tower on the way to Shellbrook


The Old South
Fire Tower

The South Fire Tower was an old wooden structure that was built in the 1950's it was a favorite stop because it was just off the "Roddick Trail" that lead you past the old Fisher Homestead. Suddenly one day we had found it laying on the ground, rotten to the core someone had done the right thing and pulled in down before it fell on it's own. It did however serve a purpose and the size of the timber that was down just a short distance away was proof that there hadn't been a fire in the near vicinity for quite awhile.

The Holbein Fire Tower

The Holbein Fire Tower disappeared after the fire that swept thru the area in around 2005. I am not clear on whether the tower was taken down prior to the fire or a result of the fire.
