August 1, 1935: "Lightning played a peculiar prank at the Pyramid Rock lookout station in the Siskiyou National Forest, one evening recently. Communications with this remote lookout is by means of a short wave radio. A bolt came in from the antenna, the lead-in of which passed between two studdings separating the east windows. It shattered both of the uprights and cracked the glass but miraculously missed the ranger, M. Stenerson, and his mongrel puppy mascot." (Curry County Reporter)
August 29, 1935: "Charles Hogue has been stationed as lookout at Pyramid Rock, about ten miles due east of here, relieving Martin Stenerson, who has accepted a position with the Indian Service in Washington." (Curry County Reporter)
May 1940: "Position should be available during lightning season, and has potential value for suppression on account of being located on a road. Position was not manned until July 6 in 1939, but was maintained until September 30. Suggested dates will permit shift in period manned to meet variations in weather conditions." (Plans, Guard Placement, Siskiyou National Forest)
1941: The lookout staffed 94 days and reported to the Gold Beach station by way of West Coast Telephone Company.
