Idaho Backcountry Fire Lookouts
from Jim McCoy’s family photos
“My folks [Myron and Aloha McCoy] were on lookouts back when Dan LeVan was the Ranger.”

Dan LeVan was the Ranger long before Earl [Dodds].
“When I was a little kid, Dan LeVan was then retired and did a fair bit of traveling and would send the folks picture postcards from different places. I remember he most always addressed them to me which my dad got a kick out of. If memory serves, Dan usually signed off with “from the old man of the mountains”. I always thought they were great.” – JMc
