Fun trip.

Basically the route is from the parking area at Artist Point and then following the road to Austin Pass and just beyond, then dropping down to Bagley Lake and following the trail (or trying to follow the summer trail under all the snow) to the saddle south of Mazama Dome. We continued on towards Hyas Lake and Galena Chain Lakes and picked up the SE ridge of Barometer Mtn which we followed to the top.

Great views of the area from here.

Another great trip, with great company (SuzanneR, Ace, MikeT, me).

More information on the lookout: It appears that while this was a former lookout site, it was nothing more than a camp which was established in the 1930's and abandoned in the 1940's.
