September 1923: "Reported a fire at the distance of 36 miles." (Six Twenty-Six)
January 1924: "Doubtless, Forest officers who were building the lookout cabin on the summit of Mt. Aix, on the east side of the Rainier, were to busy to enjoy the scenery. At least, the only official contributions from Mt. Aix were ok'd bills of labor, material, and pack-horses, lookout reports, and a verbal comment to the effect that it was 'a blamed hard mountain to climb, and rough country to get into. G.E.G." (Six Twenty-Six)
December 1924: "Modern ideas for improvements to the Mt. Aix Lookout Station have been suggested to Supervisor Fenby by Lookout Ernest Beeks, who was on duty there last summer. Among other things, Lookout Beeks makes the following recommendations: 'By way of some slight added improvements about the Lookout Station, should you at any future time contemplate such, and may wish to make it a point of more or ------ attraction, as well as for the convenience, comfort, and ----- of the isolated Lookout man, and also for the pleasure of the visitors who will increase in number each year; I might suggest that with the expenditure of no great sum for cement, an extension of added porch room with concrete floors on the three sides, north, south, and east of house, with a railing surrounding all, which, as stated, I'm sure would be appreciated, not only by the Lookout attendant, but by the enthusiastic mountain climbers, who, during their vacation periods, find a pleasure in exploration of the higher altitudes, and, as you know, a few interested and enthusiastic visitors, become wonderful advertisers. There are also other possibilities which could be brought in connection therewith, such as placing a turbine wheel in the head of Hindoo or Dog Creek, installing a dynamo and generate electricity with which to light and heat the house, and also for cooking purposes, and a powerful searchlight could be placed on top of the building, which could be used for a signal, and could be seen from any point on the Forest of equal altitude, coming in range of sight of the Station. Or, there is more than sufficient wind at most times to generate a million horse power, by even a small wind mill.' " (Six Twenty-Six)
1929: Panorama photos taken.
July 1929: "Lookout Edwards, of Mt. Aix, has suggested that the top of our lookout houses be painted white and the name of the peak painted on with large black letters. Not only would this help orientate our flying fire observers, but would serve as a guide for mail or other planes. In case of fog, a lost airman could obtain his bearings if he happens to pass over a lookout. C.O. Lindth" (Six Twenty-Six)
September 4, 1931: "A forest fire lookout stationed at Mt. Aix, on the divide between Clear Fork and Natches river, reports that his cabin was struck twelve times by lightning one night recently, and that his instruments registered 526 flashes and as many reports. He did not state what he wore for insulation." (The Athena Press)
