Kimama Butte

Elevation: 5,074 ft

Kimama Butte is a former BLM a fire lookout site. As best I can tell it was manned during the summer from 1937 to 1975. The lookout was demolished in the early 2000s. A road leads to the summit of this butte which is located roughly 15 miles northwest of Rupert, Idaho.
