    The video documents the (usually) very peaceful life of a fire lookout in the Gardner Lookout on the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, California. I've been a Marin County Fire Department volunteer lookout for two years and deeply love the mountain and the peace it brings to us here in the Bay Area. Perhaps this 6-minute video will convey some of the emotions I feel when sitting (and sleeping) on her peak. All timelapse editing done in Lightroom4 and LR Timelapse2. www.garyyost.com For more information about becoming a fire lookout in Marin County, visit http://marinlookouts.com

      Mt. Tamalpais, sentinel peak of the San Francisco Bay Area, is considered sacred by many... native and non-native alike. In 1950, the military bulldozed the highest peak of the mountain to build an Air Force Station tasked with directing jet interceptors and short range Nike nuclear missiles against the potential threat of Russian nuclear bombers. By 1980 the base was obsolete and summarily closed. The military literally walked away from dozens of structures, leaving behind a huge toxic mess on the mountain. Through the use of historical footage, 3D reconstruction, interviews and breathtaking timelapse cinematography, this 20-minute film, narrated and co-written by Peter Coyote, explores the history of Tam's West Peak and how local citizens have been fighting to restore their mountain to a natural state. www.invisiblepeak.com © 2014 Gary Yost The is the 1280x720 version.

                Fire danger was quite low during August of 2011 because we had very foggy mornings and evenings with high moisture levels. Those conditions were perfect for enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Ocean as it condenses into fog and wraps itself around the flanks of Mt. Tamalpais. Join me in the transcendental experience of overnighting at the Gardner Lookout at the 2571' summit of the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais during a 2-day lookout shift. (It was the year after making this video that I decided to create my "Day in the Life of a Fire Lookout." https://vimeo.com/48169212 ) Shot with a Canon XF100 and edited in Final Cut Pro X.
