February 24, 1916: “In this district we have lookout camps at High Camp, Highland Butte, Table Rock, Ogle Mountain and Mountain Home Rock.” (The Molalla Pioneer)
August 5, 1920: “Milt Williams, a forest ranger, had a thrilling experience the other day. He had been to Table Rock making observations, looking for evidence of existing fires and was on his way to High Camp, through the timber, when he was startled by a very large cougar springing at him. He was armed only with an axe which he swung at the animal at the same time letting out a yell befitting the occasion. It was evident that the cougar, which will attack a man only under extraordinary circumstances, had heard him coming through the woods and had stalked him thinking it was a deer or other game. When the man was seen the beast evidently surprised and struck the ground on the run to get away. Mr. Williams has been in the habit of carrying a heavy Smith-Wesson revolver with him but has recently discarded it because it was too heavy. He is now carrying it and it does not seem so heavy as before.” (The Molalla Pioneer)
