01sign.jpg Dee Wright Observatory, located at McKenzie Pass, is named for Dee Wright, who was a true mountain-man, guide, and, from 1920 to 1934, Forest Service packer. Wright drove pack strings across the Cascades and helped locate and build portions of the Skyline Trail, now known as the Pacific Crest Trail. And, he was the foreman of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) crew that built the Observatory named for him.
