November 1922: "By planning the best use of temporary men's time it was possible to construct a standard lookout tower on the top of a good log cabin on Lookout Mountain. Another window will be added to the cabin and it will then have a window on each side and end. The tower is standard and affords an excellent view for the lookout. The approximate cost of material,m packing, and construction is $165.00. The project was financed from a balance on the allotment for a standard house on Muckamuck Mountain. We found that the material list for a standard house is about one bunch of shingles short and that the roofing paper must be very carefully laid out if it will cover the surface required."

August 1925: "Here is chronicled one instance where a burning pipe-heel did cause a fire. A sheepherder on Buttermilk Creek went into a willow thicket to cut a pole. While running around in the thicket he knocked his pipe from his mouth, spilling the burning tobacco. This was about 10 a.m. Beals, on Lookout Mountain, reported a fire between the forks of Buttermilk. When Frank Gray's trail crew arrived 1 1/4 hours later, they found an 8-acre fire. The sheepherder admitted having been the cause of it. Appropriate law enforcement action was taken. Prompt action by Gray's trail crew, in telephone communication with ranger and dispatcher, kept this from being a nasty C fire. H.P." (Six Twenty-Six)
