1923: Found written on the wall of Nebo Lookout cabin. The Lookout was a retired sheepman who had invested his money in a bank which failed this spring: 'Banks may fail and treasures scatter, Friends may go but does it matter. A mother grouse is scratching on my lawn, I have friends beyond the counting. Every bird on Nebo Mountain Serenades me every evening and at dawn.'
